We are what we eat. Our bodies are built cell by cell, from the foods we eat. In a similar way, we are what we think. Our world-view is shaped by what we feed into our heads, and by the thoughts we hold.
The following was sent to me. It is supposed to come from a Cherokee-American.
An old man taught his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside me," he says to the boy. "It’s a terrible fight and it’s between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
“The other is good – he is 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 thinks about it for a minute and then asks his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"
The old man replies, "The one we feed."
We bear responsibility for our inner life, for the person we become, how we live, and how we treat those around us.
If we swallow wicked thoughts or good thoughts, whichever wolf we feed, then that is who we become. Our minds are like our bodies – they are both made by what we consume and what we chew.
Our character is constructed by which wolf we feed.
Let’s Pray: Dear God, may we choose a healthy diet of joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith in You. Amen.
Here’s a Thought: We are what we think
