CHARACTER


By Vernalee

Allow me to tell you a story. Here goes...

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. Prophetically, he tells him a story about two wolves.

"A fight is going on inside me, he said to the boy. It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil - he is full with anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is good - he is full of 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, 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."

Truly, what we internally fed in our souls determines who we are; it determines our character!
