Parable of the two women and the broken vase

The kingdom of God is like two women who each broke a precious vase. The first woman swept up the shards and threw them away. The second woman wept, then carefully glued the vase back together. It could no longer hold water, so woman decided it would hold prayers instead, and she made it the centerpiece of her house. Everyone who entered rejoiced that their prayers would be held, and the vase was filled to overflowing.
