More about the topic
Jesus knows you and cares for you, and wants you to stay close to Him and listen to Him and be happy in your heart. He makes sure you have everything you need, and is never too tired or busy to help you.
In the film, Jesus and the disciples have found a quiet place to rest, when five thousand people come to hear Him speak. The disciples want to send the people away, but Jesus cares for them and tells the disciples to let them stay. When it gets late, the people are hungry, but there is no food. A boy has five loaves of bread and two fish, which he gives to the disciples. Jesus starts sharing these among the people, and by a miracle there is enough for everyone, with plenty left over!
Jesus cared for the people, and wanted them to hear what He had to say, so He made sure none of them were hungry. He is the same today, and cares for us in every way, and most of all that His words can help us and make us happy.

“… casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”
1 Peter 5:7.
“I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
“But when the multitudes knew it, they followed Him; and He received them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who had need of healing.”
“Then He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the multitude. So they all ate and were filled, and twelve baskets of the leftover fragments were taken up by them.”
“If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love … These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.”
