Grace and Conviction

I read a devotional this morning on Proverbs 27:6 that has made me examine the way I respond to people. 

Look at these quotes from this morning’s Experiencing God Day By Day reading:

1) “Jesus never gave relief to people who were under conviction.”

2) ‘When Zacchaeus, who was in remorse for his sin, shared his generous plans for restitution, Jesus did not say, “Now Zacchaeus, the important thing is that you feel sorry for what you did.”‘

3) ‘Neither did Jesus excuse disbelief. We never find Jesus saying, “Well, that’s all right. I know I’m asking you to believe a lot, and that’s not easy.”‘

4) “Don’t ever try to ease the discomfort of someone whom the Holy Spirit is making uncomfortable!”

What are your thoughts on this? Do we err in trying to bring comfort?
