A Cherokee Fable

  • One evening, a grandfather was teaching his young grandson about the internal battle that each person faces.
  • " There are two wolves struggling inside each of us," the old man said.
  • "'One wolf is vengefulness, anger, resentment, self-pity, fear.
  • The other wolf is compassion, faithfulness, hope, truth, love."
  • The grandson sat, thinking, then asked: "Which wolf wins, Grandfather?"
  • His grandfather replied, "'The one you feed. "
I think I may have let a scrap or two too many fall to the wrong wolf.
