God, of course, is the one asking the question and we are expected to reply, “Yes,” with no knowledge of what is about to happen. “Are you willing to live life?” God might ask us. What is our response? It is like the Jesus parable where the landowner asks the same question and first man says, “Yes,” but then never shows up and the second man says, “No,” but changes his mind and goes to work in the field.
How hard is it to “yes” to the unknown? We all know the answer to that question. Not knowing what’s behind life’s curtain is what our “yes” mandates. (Is that what “blind faith” means?)
Our “yes” is based on a faith foundation that includes God’s mercy, compassion and continuing presence. We may “blindly” say “yes” but our trusting eyes can see the glories of God and we are able to give an unconditional “yes” to life.
What does this life hold for us? Well, keep saying “yes” and then see what happens.
