I heard a story that I thought worth sharing. It’s called “Two Wolves”.
An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. “A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
“A fight between two wolves. One is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
Grandfather simply replied, “The one I feed.”
Which wolf will you feed today?
I’d like to give a correct attribution for this story, but have found many variations – from Cherokee Legend to an adaptation
of a Billy Graham story. If you have actual proof of the origin, please let me know.
