  • Proverbs 27 says, "Whoever tends a fig tree, will eat its fruit." Apparently, faithful diligence brings reward. Now, that's a speech we want to tell our kids before they go to college. And, one we need to give ourselves when we have a prodigal child. Or are looking for a job or struggling with a bad habit. In faithfulness, keep tending to the tree-the relationship or situation-season after season. It may not bring quick reward or bear the exact fruit you want, but reward it likely will bring.

Diligence secures a reward.

Ron: Diligence secures a reward.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: That’s a sentiment of Proverbs 27 in the Bible. “Whoever tends a fig tree,” it says, “will eat its fruit.” Apparently, faithful diligence brings reward. Now, that’s a speech we want to say to our kids before sending them off to college. And, one we need to give ourselves when we have a prodigal child. Or find ourselves wrestling with a difficult family situation or looking for a job or struggling with a bad habit.

In faithfulness, just keep tending to the tree—the relationship or situation—season after season doing what needs to be done. It may not bring quick reward or bear the exact fruit you want, but reward it likely will bring. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
