Jesus knew about the importance of people being fed. This is why when the end of day is coming after he has been teaching a large crowd he does not just send them away empty. Instead, he tells his disciples to find the folks something to eat. The disciples do not seem to find much, just a boy with a few loaves and a couple of fish, but Jesus multiplies that gift and soon all have enough to eat. The feeding of the five thousand is one of the only miracles Jesus performs that is found in all four Gospels. It seems clear that the writers want us to know that God is concerned with our daily bread—with making sure that all have enough.
