Psalm 58:Do you rulers indeed speak justly?
    Do you judge people with equity?
No, in your heart you devise injustice,
    and your hands mete out violence on the earth.


Twisting words is dangerous. What I mean is when someone spoke the truth, I took that truth and applied “my” truth to it making their whole statement invalid. My measure for doing this was the “Who are you” measure. The more “important” the person the less I asked “Who are you?”

  • When I put people beneath me I ask in my mind “Who are you?”
  • When I ask “Who are you” in my mind I put people beneath me or beneath others.
  • When I think in terms of “level” or “expertise” then I put people beneath me.

“Level” is a corporate term that I learned to give a person a grade which affects their compensation, the better the performance the more the pay. Then I ran into places where I was told to hire or elevate a person regardless of their performance. I had to learn something different, “justifying my actions.” This justification led to twisting words which is a very dangerous place.

  • When I seek superiority I am not seeking GOD.
  • When I seek elevation I am not seeking GOD.
  • When I seek to be placed above people I am not seeking GOD.

GOD saw that being “GOD” was not something to be sought, instead HE decided to become the most helpless thing on the planet, namely a human. The reason humans were so helpless was the fact that all were sentenced to be sent to Hell because all have sinned. Intellect could not save me. HE decided to lower HIMSELF, become one of us and to die in my place.

GOD says “do not think more of yourselves” to me. This means I must serve as GOD served me.

  • Are you trying to elevate yourself?
  • Do you think you “deserve” better treatment or more of something?
  • Are you twisting someone’s words to get ahead or stay ahead?
  • Can you lower yourself in order to have GOD raise you up HIS way?
