“Iron sharpens iron.
One person sharpens the wits of another.
Anyone who tends a fig tree
Will eat its fruit.
Anyone who takes care of a master
Will be honored.
Just as water reflects the face,
So one human heart reflects another.”
It takes iron to sharpen iron. You can help another person to become sharp and witty. If you take care of a fig tree, you can eat its fruit. If you take care of a master, you will be honored. Just as water reflects your face, so the human heart can reflect another person. Human interaction has some very good consequences on others.
