Should you lift weights with sore muscles?

Hello, I was wondering if it was acceptable to lift weights with very sore muscles (DOMS) from a previous strength-training session. Would this increase more growth and strength by gritting your teeth and pushing through the pain? Or would it be better for muscle development to allow them to rest and heal? What about very light muscle soreness?
