One evening, an elderly
Cherokee brave told his
grandson about a battle that
goes on inside people (all of us).

He said “my son, the battle is
between two ‘wolves’ inside us all.
one is evil. it is anger,
envy, jealousy, sorrow,
regret, greed, arrogance,
self-pity, guilt, resentment,
inferiority, lies, false pride,
superiority, and ego.

The other is good.
it is joy, peace love, hope serenity,
humility, kindness, benevolence,
empathy, generosity,
truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about
it for a minute and then asked
his grandfather:

“Which wolf wins?…”

The old Cherokee simply replied,
“The one that you feed”

The lesson is simple … (Read Gal. 5 later)
Feed the spirit, live by the spirit;
Feed the flesh, live by the flesh …

You don’t have to be super religious to understand this.
The result of feeding the spirit (the new person God has made you): peace
The result of feeding the flesh (the old person you were, our old ways): stress and anxiety

Which one wins? … The one you feed!
God bless you…
