Two Wolves...which will win?

I had a whoppin' large group of teens for a home school teen party at our home just Friday night...
with a big group of teens, also comes a big group of moms...
LOVE it when that happens!!!

There were so many amazing conversations taking place, 
but one that will stick with me is the following story that my friend, Jessica, shared that evening.  I love it!!!  
I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do...
and even more I hope it will cause you to stop and think about some of the "wolves" in your life!

From a Cherokee legend:

There is a story about an old Cherokee teaching his grandson about life.
"A fight is going on inside of me,"
he said to the boy.
"It is a terrible fight,
and it is between two wolves."

One is evil:
He is anger, self-pity, guilt,
resentment, inferiority, lies,
false pride, superiority, and ego."

He continued,
"The other is good:
He 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?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, 
"The one you feed."
