Psalm 139

Songs of Scripture
Psalm 139

If God knows everything that is going on, even inside of our heads, how is he different from Santa in that creepy Christmas carol: “He knows when you are sleeping, he knows when you’re awake. He knows if you’ve been bad or good…”
Is that all that God is – a cosmic Santa Claus, doling out rewards and punishment for all of the good and bad things that we do?
