It is like the wise Native American, who was sitting by the camp fire at night, with his grandson, when his grandson asked; “grandfather, as I grow older, I find a battle raging within me. It is like the bear and the wolf are fighting. The bear wants to do good, but the wolf who is bad prevents him and wants to do bad. I want the bear to win, but I am concerned. Who will win this battle in my soul.” After staring into the fire contemplating this dilemma, the Grandfather in all wisdom replied, “The one that you feed is the one that shall win.”
