In the same way, you who are younger, submit yourselves to your elders. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”

– 1 Peter 5:5 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor,

If we looked at our communities of faith, would we see them as humble? Do we see an intergenerational honoring of younger to older and older to younger? Notice the phrase, “All of you”. The younger generation can bring creative new thinking to set the course for a community, and the older generation brings the wisdom to keep bad history from repeating itself. It is in this dynamic tension that humility can lead the people of God forward.
