- To own a vine and a fig tree symbolized prosperity.
- To sit under one's own vine and fig tree symbolized peace, safety and security.
A barren land produces only thorns and thistles. However, that was not the case during Solomon's lifetime. The land was fertile, and all the people from one end of the region to the other, lived in peace, safety and prosperity. Every man had his own vine and fig tree.
Today, we too live in a fertile land; a land flowing with vines and fig trees. However, many people don't take the time to sit under their own vine and free tree. They work hard to get material things, but they don't take the time to sit down and enjoy them. They keep working to get more things, and the cycle continues.
Notice there is no "s" on vine or tree in the above scripture. Be satisfied with your one vine and fig tree. You don't have to accumulate an entire vineyard or a large orchard in order to enjoy what you already have.
If God has blessed you with your own one vine and one fig tree, do what the people of Solomon's day did. Sit down and rest under them as an indication that you appreciate what God has provided.
