God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets,…
A great king once said to a favourite, "Ask what thou wilt, and I will give it thee." He thought," If I ask to be made general of all the army, I shall get it; if for great riches of half the kingdom, I will gain it; but I will ask for what will give me all these." So he said to the king, "Give me thy daughter to wife." This made him heir to all the wealth and honours of the kingdom. So he who chooses Christ becomes an heir to all the wealth and glory of the Father's kingdom.
