1 Peter 5:5

Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.

 

Those who are younger, whether in age or in the faith, should be submissive to their elders. The younger is to submit to the elder because the elders have wisdom that comes from years of experience in the things of God. They have a deep, experiential knowledge of the Word of God and have been given the responsibility to care for those who are young or weak in the faith.
