(Picture a sticky note from God on a memory of something your mother once asked you to do, and even though at the time you wondered why she asked that, to this day have alway been grateful she asked. And that you listened to her.)
"There is a lad here, which hath five barley loaves, and two small fishes; but what are they among so many?"
Although not recorded in Scripture, I think everyone would agree that if the reason this young boy had the loaves and fishes with him was because his mother said to him,"Here, take this basket I've packed for you. It's only a little bread and some fish, but if you do get to see this Jesus fellow, you will have enough food to share with the others looking to see him. Maybe some of them will forget to bring something to eat, and it will be a long day. It's the right thing to do," he probably forever recalled his mother's advice as quite a good idea.
