Congrats! You made it to Thursday! The week is almost over and I pray that you all are doing well. ☺
A few days ago I stumbled upon a post on fb, the saying went like this…
An Old Cherokee told his grandson. “My son there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is evil, angry, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego. The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humanity, kindness, empathy and truth.” The boy thought about it and asked, “Grandpa which wolf wins?” Grandpa replied “whichever you feed the most.”
So which beast are you feeding… almost immediately upon reading this I had to evaluate my thoughts… or maybe it’s just me… The way we view the world is like a mirror, we reflect onto other situations things that we have previously seen or felt because of a given situation. If I’m always negative, that’s how I’ll see everything in my life. Even during the good times, I’ll find something to pick at. At the opposite side of the spectrum, optimism is great, it’s basically allowing you to view the good in everything. Now we feel strongly about certain issues because we’ve come across those things before. For example, if I gave you the word “parent,” we all have a visual for that regardless of how we feel about our parents. That word alone connects to some type of emotion, good or bad.
Now about this beast… some of what we feed it is the same things we saw our parents feeding it. Or maybe because of what we saw we wanted to be nothing like that and fed our beast the exact opposite. Regardless, at some point, you become responsible for what it’s being fed. There will be no one to blame for your actions, and because of this it is imperative that you feed your spirit (beast in this example) the right things.
You can’t go through life dishing out hate and disrespect and expect others to fall at your feet. In essence it goes back to the golden rule. Do to others whatever you would like them to do to you. This is the essence of all that is taught in the law and the prophets (Matthew 7:12). So my advice, (that you can choose to accept or not), is to put out into the world what you wish to receive back. The flesh (the bad wolf) will allow you to do and say uncharacteristic things like being evil and spewing hate, but the Holy spirit (the good wolf) knows love. Sooo… choose… I love you all and I pray you have an incredible weekend! I leave you with this…
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
Thanks again, God bless and One love.
