The Battle Inside Us

The battle inside Us

One evening an old man told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said, “My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.

One is Evil – It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

The other is Good – It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”

The old man simply replied, “The one you feed.”


Which wolf are you feeding now?

  1. Please, can I have the full context of this subject – The Battle Inside Us. Any comments, views, preaching etc in that context.

  2. Great analogy here. I like the simplicity yet power with which this tells us to watch what we feed ourselves.

    Thanks for the reminder.

  3. Great analogy indeed! We often concentrate only on fights not on the root cause. We struggle to survive without diognoseis and consulting the right consultant – The Word of God. May Holy Spirit fill in us to have right Wisdom.
