The lad with the loaves and fishes

"Mother, Mother, I helped the Master today!" the lad may have shouted when he came home late that evening. How his eyes must have shone when he related how his meal of five loaves and two fishes had fed more than five thousand followers who had come to hear Christ Jesus' words and witness his healings. See John 6:1–13 .

Of course, the Bible is silent on the boy's response to the marvelous things he'd witnessed, but I like to think that something like this occurred. And think how different the results would have been, at least for the lad, if he had not been there on that hillside, if he had not come with something he could contribute.
