Then Nathan said to David, “You are that man! The Lord, the God of Israel, says: I anointed you king of Israel and saved you from the power of Saul… Then David confessed to Nathan, “I have sinned against the Lord.” Nathan replied, “Yes, but the Lord has forgiven you, and you won’t die for this sin.

2 Samuel 12:7, 13 NLT


The true servants of God are never going to “gild the pill” to the sinners minimizing their sin; obeying God will confront them with their sin. But when they confront them, they also will imitate Jesus giving them a message of hope, forgiveness and restoration.
