Philip answered him, “Two hundred days wages worth of food would not be enough for each of them to have a little.”
I can just imagine the worry in Philip’s voice when he was telling Jesus his estimation of their food on hand as against the crowd. I can almost guess whats on his mind, he probably was thinking, uh-oh we’re in for a big trouble there’s no way we can feed a hundred with just five barley loaves and two fishes. I used to drive myself crazy too whenever I try to estimate the possible damage to my pocket as against my actual resources whenever unexpected expenses come along. I sometimes tend to forget that the Lord accurately provides and in most cases, forgets His Math too for he would often give more than what I actually need. He’s clearly not a Math Whiz, only a super generous God.
