Dominoes Pizza used to promise that if they did not deliver your pizza in 30 minutes, it was free. Burger King wants you to have it your way. But does a consumer-driven culture of easy access breed people of depth or superficiality? This lesson examines the necessity of disciplined attention and meditation in all one studies—scripture, current events, academic disciplines, people, nature, etc.—as part of God's design to transform us. It examines some whys and the hows of study, and concludes with a brief reflective exercise, using the "Jesus Prayer."
