I love the story of the Eskimo who use to pit his lead sled dogs against one another in weight pulling contest. The old Eskimo had one black dog and one white spotted dog, and they seemed to out pull each other on a regular basis. Amazingly the old Eskimo always placed his bet on the winning dog. Long after the two dogs were retired, one of the villagers asked how he always knew which one of the two evenly matched dogs would win in a given contest. How did he know which one to bet on? “It’s easy,” the old Eskimo would say. “I bet on the one that I’d been feeding all week.”
The Bible tells us we ought to dwell on things that are true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, of good repute, excellent, and worthy of praise (Philippians 4:8).
What dogs are you feeding?
