Jesus met people with mercy and then called them to radical repentance. Recently in church we read about a terrible sinner who climbed a tree to see Jesus. Jesus was kind and accepting of the man, and inspired him to radical change of his behavior. "For the Son of Man came to seek out the lost." (quoting from memory; don't shoot me if I get a word wrong).
