Take care of sick people

When I was sick, you took care of me.
-Matthew 25:36

I read past this verse many times, but didn't get that the same Jesus who said, "heal the sick", also said that his followers would also take care of the sick. Healing the sick is ministry, but so is caring for the sick. In other words, taking care of sick people is not second class and people who don't get healed through prayers are not second class and caring for them is as much a calling from God as healing is.
