I read a story one time about
An old Cherokee Indian chief
He is teaching his grandson about life
He told him, a fight is going on inside me, he said to the boy,
It's a terrible fight, and it's like between two wolves
One wolf is evil; he is filled with anger, greed, envy, and false pride
The other wolf is good; he is joyful, peaceful, loving, and filled with
Humility, kindness, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith
He told the boy this same fight is going on inside you, and inside
Every other person in the world today
The grandson thought about it for a minute
Then he asked his grandfather
Which wolf will win?
The old chief simply replied,
"The one you feed."
And in this story I perceived it's not only about everyday life
This same story can be applied to every Christian today
Except it's not about two wolves
It's about two spirits
The devils evil spirit, and The Holy Spirit
It's between our worldly side, and our spiritual side
Which one will you feed?
Remember the one you feed will determine where you spend eternity.
