The Story of 2 Wolves Fighting Inside Me

When I saw this graphic by, I knew I had to share it with my readers. Our pastor says this all the time. He uses dogs instead of wolves. He will say there are 2 dogs that live inside us. One bad and one good. He will say which one do you think will come out more? He would then add the one you feed the most. That goes along with this graphic I saw on Facebook. It reads like this …

Two Wolves Fighting Inside Me
Two Wolves Fighting Inside Me

A wise old man was talking to a boy and said, “There are two wolves always fighting inside me. One is filled with anger, hate, jealousy, shame and lies. The other wolf is filled with love, joy, truth, and peace. This battle rages inside of you and all men” The boy thought for a moment and asked “Which wolf will win?” The old man answered “The one you feed.”

This is why it is important to feed the good wolf. How can you do that? Stay in the Word. Study your Bible, Pray, Worship, be active in Church, serve one another, Witness, share your testimony and more. Give it all to God. All things are Possible with God! So I encourage you to feed the good wolf. Now if you feed the bad wolf you are feeding and giving into sin. Bad wolf is a representation of sin.

As the answer says the one you feed will win. Just think what you feed yourself with more will win and over power the other. Will you choose God or Sin?

I did do some research and found the original post from Livin3.
I found it on their blog and posted a link to that blog on the graphic above.
