He who tends a fig tree will eat its fruit, and he who looks after his master will be honored. – Proverbs 27:18

In this comparison, we see a picture of competence and loyalty. The master is like the fig tree, providing for the needs of his servant. But if the tree is not tended, no one benefits. If the master is not looked after, he won’t have the resources to honor his servant.

Today, we could remove the master/slave titles and put in employer/employee, or entrepreneur/client.

To tend to our source of provision is to take care of ourselves.
