Known for Gratefulness

Topics: Gratitude

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: I remember calling a dear friend on his eighty-ninth birthday. During that conversation, he said, “When I’m gone, if I’m remembered for anything, I want it to be that I was a grateful man.”

There were a lot of things over the course of his life this man could have been discontented about. He lost his mother when he was three years old and his dad when he was still a young man. His oldest child had been killed in a tragic car accident. Now here he was, in the sunset years of his life, with his health failing, living in a nursing home, determined to be a grateful man.

I didn’t hear him complaining that day, just expressing thanksgiving: the type of attitude the apostle Paul wrote about when he said, “Do all things without grumbling.” Paul went on to say this attitude will let you shine as a light in the world.

A grateful heart—that’s what I want to be known for. What about you?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
