I’ve always loved that line out of the Blues Brothers.  Whenever someone failed to see eye-to-eye with them as they worked to put on a concert to raise money to save the orphan’s home, the explanation was simple.  “We’re on a Mission from God.”

Don’t you wish that line worked in real life?

“We need to collect donations to help the homeless/hungry/incarcerated/illiterate/refugees.”

“Why should I care?  It doesn’t affect me.”

“We’re on a mission from God.”

Oh, wait.  That’s right.  Life wasn’t particularly easy for Jake and Elwood (The Brothers).  Sure, they seemed to have a knack for finding trouble, but things didn’t get a whole lot easier just because they were working to help someone else.

Yet they succeeded in spite of the fact that people thought they might be more than a little off.
