Frightened, Confused, and Broken Leaders

God loves reluctant leaders and, even better, he loves reluctant leaders who know they are frightened, confused, and broken.  In fact, he seems to have a special fondness for rebels and fools.  Does God choose troubled leaders because few other people are foolish enough to say yes, or does he choose weak, troubled people because they serve a unique purpose in their broken state?  The answer is yes.
