Amazon Can’t Match God

Give us each day our daily bread.
                   —Luke 11:3

Amazon has launched a service that’s giving brick-and-mortar retailers heartburn, and mom-and-pop shops a spot in small-business obituaries: One-day-delivery—order today, get it tomorrow.

It’ll cost you $119 per year, but it gets you free delivery and no-questions-asked return policy.

God beat Amazon to the market with a product called “Today.” No up-front fee, free delivery—and something Amazon can’t match: no product charge; it’s a gift.

A fresh, new package is delivered to your door every morning. But be aware: you can’t return it—use it or lose it.

It comes with instructions:

“This is the day the Lord has made . . . rejoice and be glad in it” (Ps 118:24).
“Use every chance you have for doing good” (Eph 5:16).
“Be sure to stop being angry before the end of the day” (Eph 4:26).

Today is like money in your pocket: you can spend it
however you choose—but you can spend it only once.
