The Subtle Way Amazon Delivery Drones Affect Discipleship

We live in a “I want it NOW!” society, but rarely can one get a product “now.” Amazon suggested a solution to this dilemma in 2005.

The two-day wait is a small price to pay to avoid leaving the comfort of your home, searching through endless store aisles, and standing in long lines to obtain that irresistible item on your “got-to-have-it list.” However, two days has become two days too long (or 47 hours and 30 minutes to be exact).
