Two wolves inside us all

An old Cherokee chief said to his grandson, “My son, there are two wolves inside all of us that battle all the time.

One is evil. It is anger, jealousy, envy, greed, resentment, inferiority, fear, ego, disappointment, doubt and fear,” the chief said.  “The other is good.  It is joy, love peace, hope, kindness, empathy, patience, compassion, gentleness and truth.”

His grandson thought for a moment in silence.  Then he asked, “Grandfather, which one wins?”

The old man quietly replied, “The one you feed.”

  1. Amen. As Paul wrote to the Galatians. “Live by the Spirit and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.”
