You start watching a new show on Netflix or Hulu with your spouse and the next thing you know you've watched like 4 in a row! It’s late and you have to get up early in the morning.

When we talk about humility, we think about what David Wrote in Psalm 139:23. He wrote:
Search me, God, and know my heart;
test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
But when you go back to the very beginning of Psalm 139 – David actually started by talking about how God has already searched his heart. The psalm is really about God’s omnipresence. (Talking about how God’s presence is everywhere)
