An Eskimo owned two Husky dogs that he had trained as fighters (I don’t condone this, but that was his way of life). As he roamed from village to village, he encouraged the locals in Alaska to watch the dogfights he staged. One of the dogs looked different than the other, so he would predict which dog would win each match. Somehow, he had the uncanny ability to always pick the winning dog.

Just before he passed away, the man finally answered the question he had been asked hundreds of times. “How did you always know which dog would win?”

At last, he revealed his secret. “It was easy,” he said. “The winner was always the dog I was feeding.”

So it is with human nature. There is a battle within us. Which of two natures will win? The answer is as easy as the man’s. It’s the nature you are feeding! The places we go, the people we hang out with, the things we watch and listen to can encourage our desire for good or our desire for evil and harm.

What is happening in your mind and heart? What nature are you feeding and making stronger? There’s very good counsel in the Bible on this:

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy, meditate on these things . . . and the God of peace will be with you.”

That will be like food for the soul, and it will change your life for the better. Let me encourage you to take a step in this direction and see if it doesn’t result in a win for you, your family, and your community.
