Today the staff at COTHA enjoyed a DELICIOUS lunch that was prepared and served by the Daughters of The King. The Order of the Daughters of the King is organized as a religious order. Each Daughter takes a lifetime vow to live by the Rule of the Order. The Rule of Life requires a spiritual discipline of daily prayer, service and evangelism. Because of the vow, they refer to themselves as an order, not an organization.
Through her Rule of Service, a Daughter daily seeks to do the will of God where she is, remembering Jesus; words, “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these….you did it for me.” Matthew 25:40.
What a blessing this group of ladies is to our church and to humankind! They are like angels that always seem to appear when needed. Every Christmas they see that our church Christmas tree is beautifully decorated and standing in the foyer. At Easter they always organize the Prayer Vigil which lasts all night and well into the next day.
We are told that by God’s grace we are his chosen ones and will live in heaven with God for eternity. I believe that. But, when I see the Daughters of The King in action, I can’t help but think that these ladies are living and serving on the Fast Track To Heaven!!!! For them, I am forever grateful!
