PASTORAL SALUTE

Several years ago I read an old Cherokee legend about a grandfather teaching his grandson about life.  "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.  "It is a terrible fight and it is 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."  he continued, "The other is good- he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.  The same fight is going on inside you- and inside every other person, too."  The grandson though about what his grandfather had said and asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"  The grandfather simply replied, "The one you feed." 
 
Each day in small ways I get to make a choice as to which wolf to feed.   Those small choices come in the form of choosing to forgive rather than hold on to resentment. Each day I get to choose to hope, rather than thinking the worst.  Each day I can choose to tell a difficult truth rather than spreading a convenient lie.  What I am learning in life is that the person I am and the person I become are the result of those small choices I make each day.  Those choices put me on a path, and that path leads to a destination.  Ultimately I think the old Cherokee grandfather was right.  Much of who we become and what we do boils down to the wolf we choose to feed.

Yours in Christ,
Pastor Forde
