A lack of discernment is a sign of diminishing faith. The Bible talks about followers of Christ who should have been growing in their faith, progressing from milk to solid food, but they were moving backwards, returning to baby food. Still “unskilled in the works of righteousness” (Heb.5:13).
Guru Gobind Singh is sitting by a river when Har Gopal, a rich devotee, presents two gold bracelets. The Guru starts playing with them. One falls into the river, and the devotee jumps in to retrieve it. “If you can tell me where it fell, I may find it yet,” he said. And the Guru throws in the second one and says, “it fell here!”
