An old Cherokee tale tells of a grandfather teaching life principles to his grandson. The wise old Cherokee said, “Son, on the inside of every person a battle is raging between two wolves. One wolf is evil. It’s angry, jealous, unforgiving, proud, and lazy. The other wolf is good. It’s filled with love, kindness, humility, and self-control.
“These two wolves are constantly fighting,” the grandfather said.
The little boy thought about it, and said, “Grandfather, which wolf is going to win?”
The grandfather smiled and said, “Whichever one you feed.”
