The multitudes, literally thousands (possibly 15,000 when counting women and children) of people had come to hear the teachings of Jesus. As the hours went by, and their spiritual hunger was being fed, their physical hunger was increasing.
There was one boy willing to share what little he had. It didn’t seem like much, and two fish, and 5 loaves of bread, certainly didn’t seem adequate to anyone there to feed anymore than a few people – except Jesus saw things differently.
He knew the divine could reach down and make the impossible possible. Jesus gave thanks for the food, and the miracle happened. We can talk to our children about what a miracle is, how miracles can happen today, the willingness of the young boy to share his food, and to stop and see the problems we have as Jesus would see them.
