When you think of something or hear something, you start to believe it can be true. This usually leads you to some sort of action that then allows you to achieve it.
During King Mosiah’s reign, many of the “rising generation” (those that were little children during King Benjamin’s time) did not believe in the teachings of the church. They chose not to believe the traditions of their parents. This hindered their ability to understand the word of God.
Believing or even having a desire to believe, leads to actions that strengthen our testimonies.
When people, like the rising generation, choose not to believe, they don’t do certain things that would help them develop strong testimonies.

“Leave the Party”
President Henry B. Eyring of the First Presidency…“Testimony requires the nurturing by the prayer of faith, the hungering for the word of God in the scriptures, and the obedience to the truth we have received. There is danger in neglecting prayer. There is danger to our testimony in only casual study and reading of the scriptures. They are necessary nutrients for our testimony. …“Feasting on the word of God, heartfelt prayer, and obedience to the Lord’s commandments must be applied evenly and continually for your testimony to grow and prosper” (“A Living Testimony,” Ensign or Liahona, May 2011,127).
