Sometimes I come across a proverb or quote that truly makes me reflect. The following Native American proverb is a good example.
“A Native American grandfather was talking to his grandson about how he felt.
He said, “I feel as if I have two wolves fighting in my heart.
One wolf is vengeful, angry, and violent. The other wolf is loving and compassionate.”
The grandson asked him, “Which wolf will win the fight in your heart?”
The grandfather answered: “The one I feed.”
What we feed our minds and hearts takes root, cultivates, and eventually grows into a tree bearing fruit. It is up to us whether that fruit is sweet or rotten.
