Sunday Thought: Two Wolves

I watched a movie last night called Tomorrowland.  Nothing special about it really, but they did make mention of something interesting.  They mention the two wolves story. One filled with darkness and the other filled with light. Both of them always fighting each other. The question was asked, "Which wolf wins the fighting?"  The answer: "The one you feed."
It seems to me that we who are Christians are the same. We have an "old self" and a "new self". I think our old self is the sinful nature that we were born into. The new self being what God would have us be, turning away from our sinful desires. The new self being the transformation into what God would have us to be.  So which one do we feed? The sinful nature or our new self?
