The Parable of the Three Carts and the Burning House

The Parable of the Three Carts and the Burning House (Chapter 3)

There lived a rich man who had many children and abundant property. One day, a fire broke out, spreading through the house where the children were totally engrossed playing games, unaware of the fire and feeling no fear. To entice them to exit the house, the man decided to tell them that he would give them wonderful toys, carts pulled by a goat, deer and ox, and they willingly came out of the burning house. When they got out of the house, what they saw instead was a great white ox carriage adorned with numerous jewels, far more splendid than what he had promised.
