My answer is an unequivocal YES.
The question arises because most of us live in a closed space called tradition, culture, home, comfort zone etc. We sometimes venture out of this space but carry our protective space suit, our own psychological bubble while interacting with the world. From the safety of our home we sometimes look at the world outside through a narrow window. Naturally we have a very distorted view of the world and our place in it. We do not understand the true significance and worth of much that we see. Our knowledge is based on a bit of observation and a lot of conjecture. From this position most options would appear to be worthless.
Let us drop the protective suit and stand naked in front of our mother, the world.

God did not create this protective shell . . . we did and continue to do!
Interesting, too, Jesus, is just a breath away! I have NO difficulty getting to Him. (If anyone should have need for secret service protection, it would be Him.) Jesus has nothing to lose, but everything to gain, in stepping out into the world.
Gotta go . . . my dog wants to take me for a walk!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR THOUGHTS!
