Parable of the devout queen and her advisers

There once was a devout queen who, every day, went out into the village and gave a villager a chest of gold coins. Her advisers were distraught. “Your Highness,” they said, “If you continue to do this, you will give away your kingdom.”

“To whom does the kingdom belong?” She replied.

“To you,” they said, and upon hearing this, she had them immediately executed.
