A wood-seller visits the Buddha at Ñātika und tells him that, in his family, alms are given to various kinds of monks - forest-dwellers, rag-wearers, arahants, etc.

The Buddha points out to him that though it is difficult to distinguish the good und bad qualities of monks, yet he should continue to give alms to the Order. A.iii.391f.
