5 And in the same way, you younger [Christians] should be [respectfully] submissive to the older ones. And all of you should [be willing to] humbly serve one another, for God stands opposed to [the efforts of] proud people, but extends His unearned favor to those [who serve] with humility. 6 Therefore, be humble [in your actions] before God's powerful authority, so that you may be exalted [by Him] at the proper time. 7 Place all your anxious cares upon God [in prayer], because He genuinely cares about you.
