Jesus taught the importance of genuine caring. It's in the Bible, Luke 14:13-14, NIV. "When you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you, you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous."
God expects us to care for the sick and suffering. It's in the Bible, Galatians 4:14, NIV. "Even though my illness was a trial to you, you did not treat me with contempt or scorn. Instead, you welcomed me as if I were an angel of God, as if I were Christ himself."
When caring for others we are caring for our Lord. It's in the Bible, Matthew 25:40, NIV. "The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for Me.' "
