So I hollered up to God: 'Why is my life so jacked up? Why has all this pain and misery come to me? What did I ever do to deserve all these burdens?' Then I figured it out - God knew that when all I cared about was pimping my ride, chasing women, and getting drunk, I was unteachable and I was unreachable. -- Anonymous street preacher near Cass and Forest in Detroit, MI
