There is a boy here who has five barley loaves…

“Philip answered him, ‘Two hundred days’ wages worth of food would not be enough for each of them to have a little.’ One of his disciples, Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, said to him, ‘There is a boy here who has five barley loaves and two fish; but what good are these for so many?’” (JN 6: 7-9)

Philip and Andrew approached the same problem in totally different ways: Philip found it impossible and Andrew found something. Our Lord can make a miracle from nothing, but He wants to see us engaged.
