"...it seems that God doesn't care about our short lists. He consistently taps the rejects. It's as if he were the captain of a pick-up basketball team, and he picks all the short heavy kids, just to prove that he can beat the other team all by himself. But then he manages to win the game as a team, just to prove he's not a ball-hog."

I love the imagery of God who chooses the misfits and losers.
(Not that any of us are misfits and losers! But just in case we were, God would still want us on his team.)
