The parable of the tares…

The parable of the tares represents the final judgment. God leaves all mankind and even his church for Judgment Day. This does not diminish the need for discipline within the church.

On the day of judgment, no one will hear pronounced from the throne, “Well said!”
“His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master'” Mt 25.21.

“For you repay men for what they do” Psa 62.12b. “The psalmist views God’s justice as a demonstration of both his power (see v. 11c) and his loyal love (see v. 12a). When God judges evildoers, he demonstrates loyal love to his people.” —NET Bible
