As we progress through life, we make discoveries about ourselves and others. Some of these hidden gems enlighten us into how others view us. They also magnify any shortcomings we have. When working with others, we notice certain actions or reactions of those around us.
When this new information about us conveys something positive, we should be thankful to God.
Conversely, when the data shows a negative aspect of our attitudes, actions, or hearts, in order to move ahead to correct them, we are to turn those negative qualities and our hearts over to God.
This process involves leaving the items concerning us with Him. Another aspect of this is we don't dwell on the negative trait except in prayer.
In dealing with our discoveries we make about others, we need to turn what we feel over to God and also leave them there. By doing these two acts we also need to refrain from discussing the information with another individual.
