1 Peter 5:7 In-Context

5 And you who are younger must follow your leaders. But all of you, leaders and followers alike, are to be down to earth with each other, for - God has had it with the proud, But takes delight in just plain people.
6 So be content with who you are, and don't put on airs. God's strong hand is on you; he'll promote you at the right time.
7 Live carefree before God; he is most careful with you.
8 Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping.
9 Keep your guard up. You're not the only ones plunged into these hard times. It's the same with Christians all over the world. So keep a firm grip on the faith.
