An old Cherokee chief was teaching his grandson about life…”A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy. “It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves.

“One wolf is evil.  This wolf is filled with anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego.

“The other wolf is good.  This wolf is filled with joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. This same fight is going on inside you and inside every other person as well.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his old Cherokee grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The old chief simply replied, “The one you feed.”

The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks. 

On the large or small screen that YOU watch, which wolf do YOU see being fed.  Which wolf within YOU do YOU tend to feed?

DEAR GOD: I NEED YOU MORE THAN EVER.  PLEASE BRING PEACE TO MY CONFUSION, JOY TO MY SADNESS AND HOPE TO MY HEART!
