When you have heard an action or idea proposed, have you ever heard anyone say, ‘Why not?’ This implies a default answer of yes. Consider how much different it sounds to respond with, ‘Why?’ That places a burden of justification on the one making the proposal. Is ‘yes’ your default response? What do you think mine is? Consider the story of the Prodigal Son in which the father represents me. The son comes to the father with a stupid proposal to receive his inheritance early. Do you think the father was aware that this was a bad idea? And yet he agreed to it. Haven’t you found me to be lavish with favor and approval?
