The parable of the two women climbing the mountain

The kingdom of heaven is like two women climbing a mountain. The first woman made it all the way up to the top; the second woman stumbled and fell the whole way. On the way back, they both died and stood before God. “My beloved daughters,” God said to them. The first woman exclaimed, “I climbed the summit! Let me in!” God wept and opened the door for her. Then God saw the second woman in the corner, cowering. When it was her turn, she couldn’t even crawl to God, so God went to her. “I stumbled and fell the whole way. I did not make it to the top,” she said. “There is no top,” God said, and wept and opened the door for her.
