-The Eagle & the Wolf -


On the wall of a correctional center in Atlanta
.a poem written in grease pencil caught my eye
:It read

"The Eagle And The Wolf"

.There's a battle between the eagle and the wolf
The eagle inside of me represents everything that is
.good and pure
And even though it soars through the valleys
.it still lays its eggs on the mountain tops
.There's a wolf inside of me
And the wolf preys upon my weaknesses
.and justifies itself in the presence of the pack
?Who will win the war between the eagle and the wolf

There was a big space and then there were the following
.words written by someone else: "The one that you feed

I'll never forget the power of those words scrawled
on that wall. Who wins the battle for your mind? The one
?you choose to feed. Who wins the battle for your life
The one you choose to feed. Who wins the battle between
.right and wrong? The one you choose to feed

What thoughts are you feeding? Are you filling your life
with God's truth, or are you feeding it a steady diet of TV
materialism, and out-of-control habits. It's easy to become
desenitized and conformed to this world. But God calls us
to be transformed by the renewing of our minds, to take
.every thought captive, and to be doers of the Word
