Something to Ponder: Old Cherokee Story: An old Cherokee is telling his grandson about a fight that is going on inside himself. He said it is between two wolves.
One is evil: anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is good: 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 replied, “The one I feed.”
