When we read about Jesus, is a true fact that each story stand out from the other on account of his ministry.
The young boy, who is touched by Jesus to share they little he has with the multitude, shows how far he was willing to go to show his commitment and believe in Jesus with action.
Jesus saw the multitude that has followed him,and felt the compassion on the leap of faith and commitment the multitude was taking , defying hunger and harsh weather to seek to know him and listen to him speak.
Jesus compassion transcend to him feeding the multitude which was provided by the young kids.
Which was little but enough to feed the multitude.
And if any one gives, even a cup of cold water to me , of these little ones because he is my disciples, I tell you the truth, he will certainly not loose his reward.
sacrifice of 5barley loaves and 2 small fish ended up being a blessing for 5000 men to eat well.
