But which of you, having a servant plowing or feeding cattle, will say unto him by and by, when he is come from the field, Go and sit down to meat?

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

17:7 having a servant. This is a parable dealing with service for the Lord. The “servant” is actually a slave, required to do his master’s bidding. His ministry of plowing and feeding suggests the familiar parallel of caring for sheep, the duties of a shepherd, or “pastor.” In fact, the words “feeding cattle” could better be translated “pasturing.”
