“The Old Cherokee”?

Absorbing God Word

“This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth.” 1 John 1:5-6

Applying God’s Word

Once upon a time an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said the battle is between 2 wolves. One is Evil and one is Good. The grandson asked his grandfather, “Which wolf wins?” The grandfather simply replied, “The one you feed.”

I know what it’s like to lie or to not live out the truth. Before God got a hold of me, I lived a lie. No one likes admitting that they lie, but look at our world. If I lie to myself, I probably won’t have any trouble telling others a lie. My personal lie impacts everything I do.

The truth starts with me and then weaves its way into the fabric of everything I do or don’t do and say or don’t say. If I want the good wolf to win, I have to feed him the truth.

Accounting of God’s Word

Am I walking in the dark or in the light? Am I feeding the evil wolf or the good wolf?
