Which one are you feeding?

One evening an old Cherokee Indian told his grandson about a battle that was going on inside himself. He said,

“My boy, the fight is between two wolves.” 


That got the boy’s attention.

 It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by

every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’

Matthew 4:4

“One is evil,” the old man continued.

“Anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority and ego.”

Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk,

that by it you may grow up into salvation.

1 Peter 2:2

“What of the other, grandfather?” the boy asked.

Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy 

and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.

Jeremiah 15:16

“The other is good,” he said.

“Joy, Peace, Love, Hope, Serenity, Humility, Kindness, Benevolence, Empathy, Generosity, Truth, Compassion and Faith.”

 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. To him who

overcomes I will give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the Paradise of my God.

Revelation 2:7

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

“Do we all have such wolves fighting inside us, grandfather?”

So when they had eaten their breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter,

“Simon, son of Jonah, do you love me more than these?”

He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I have affection for you.”

He said to him, “Feed my lambs.”

He saith to him again the second time, “Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me?”

He saith unto him, “Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.”

He saith unto him, “Feed my sheep.”

He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of Jonah, do you have affection for me?”

Peter was grieved because he asked him the third time, “Do you have affection for me?”

He said to him, “Lord, you know everything. You know that I have affection for you.”

Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.” 

John 21:15

“Yes,” the wise old man said.

 And thou, Beth-Lehem, the land of Judah, thou art by no means the least among the

leaders of Judah, for out of thee shall come one leading, who shall feed My people Israel.’

Matthew 2:6

“Then, which wolf wins the fight?”

 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the

which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the

church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

Acts 20:28

The old Cherokee simply replied,

“The one you feed.”

Then I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth. But when I had eaten it, my stomach became bitter. And he said to me, “You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, tongues, and kings.” Revelation 10-8-11

Feed on the Word of God.


But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
    And in His law he meditates day and night.
He shall be like a tree
    Planted by the rivers of water,
    That brings forth its fruit in its season,
    Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.

Psalm 1:2-3
