“The slaves said to him, ‘Do you want us, then, to go and gather them up?’ But he said, ‘No; for while you are gathering up the tares, you may uproot the wheat with them’” (Matthew 13:28b-29).
Though instructed to be discerning, few have the maturity to do so without becoming judgmental. Every disciple is at a different place or stage in their relationship with Christ. Thus, no one person’s experience can be considered the litmus test for evaluating the genuineness someone else’s walk with him. I have also come to recognize that in the light of God’s grace, and the ministry of our Lord, my mercy is so limiting; that his is so much greater.
