Tend the flock of God that is your charge, not by constraint but willingly, not for shameful gain but eagerly, not as domineering over those in your charge but being examples to the flock. I Peter 5:2-3
You are a part of the household of God. You can wonder about the lot of those who rebel against Me. But do not turn away from Me because of sufferings. Remain faithful to the trust I have given you – not for personal gain or honor or out of a sense of duty but in joyous expectancy. Do not dominate those I send to you but lead them: in wisdom reveal to them the glory that is to come to all of you who remain faithful to Me. Behold, there is tribulation now and it will increase until I am manifested to the faithful.
