Two Wolves - A Cherokee Story

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.
He said,
“My son, the battle is between two “wolves” inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, 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 minute and then asked his grandfather,“Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee simply replied,“
The one you feed.”
Thank you Sarah for sharing! :O)

  2. Michelle,

    A lovely sentiment and one that would make the world a better place to live if everyone followed the good wolf.

    Have a great day.

  3. Hi Michelle, I am over here from Mary's.
    Wouldn't it be great if more people did follow the good wolf!!
    I was praying for Brandon to do well on his trip. I was so pleased when I read that he knew to text you when he was confused about where he was. That was great!! Blessings, Grams
