Day 36: Feeding Time


There is an old Cherokee legend about a grandfather teaching his grandson an important life lesson.

The grandfather explains to the young boy that we all have a battle going on inside of us.

He said,

“My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ that live inside us all.

One is evil.

It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

The other is good.

It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:

‘Which wolf wins?’

The old Cherokee replied simply,

“The one you feed.” (Author Unknown)

Oh

how the battle is real

the battle that takes place in our head

in what

I listen to

in what

you listen to...

When we

Put On

the

Old Self

feeding the "evil" wolf inside by

listening to the

Lies

in our head~

I am not good enough

I am unlovable

I am nothing.

When we listen

and respond to

the

Old Self

it is well fed

and

wins

and we are stuffed with the fruit of

anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.

When we

Put On

the

New Self

and listen to the

Truth

that is planted in our heart~

I am accetped

I am loved

I am His.

When we listen

and respond to

the

New Self

it is well fed

and

wins

and

and we are stuffed with the fruit of

joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

The choice to choose

Who will you feed today,

the one who speaks the loudest?

The one whose voice drowns out the truth

or

the one whose voice destroys the lies?

So

Let's

Put Off

feeding

the

Old Self

inside

who

produces rotten fruit

and

Put On

Feeding

the

New Self

inside

who will

feed me

who will

feed you

with

the

Truth

that

fully

satisfies.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

2 Corinthians 5:17
