There is an old Cherokee tale about our human predicament. “There are two wolves fighting inside each person,” the grandfather explains to his grandson: “One wolf is evil…he is anger, envy, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other wolf is good… he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.”
“Which wolf will win?” asks the grandson.
“It depends on which one you feed.”
“These things I have spoken to you so that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.” Jesus
