The Two Wolves

"Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance." 1 Corinthians 13:7 NLT

There is this old Indian proverb titled "The Two Wolves" and it goes like this:

One evening an old Cherokee told his
grandson about a battle that
goes on inside people.
He said, 'My son, there is an ongoing battle between
two 'wolves' inside us all.

One is Evil.
It is anger, envy, jealousy, 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
And then he asked his grandfather: 'Which wolf wins?'

The old Cherokee simply replied,
'The one you feed.'

Which wolf do you feed?
