The events recorded here are commonly known as “The feeding of the five thousand,” though Matthew states that there were about five thousand men besides women and children, so quite a huge crowd.
I was reminded of a little chorus we used to sing many years ago:
Oh, to be His hands extended,
Reaching out to the oppressed.
Let me touch Him,
Let me touch Jesus,
So that others may know and be blessed.
