“Belief and testimony and faith are not passive principles. They do not just happen to us. Belief is something we choose—we hope for it, we work for it, and we sacrifice for it. We will not accidentally come to believe in the Savior and His gospel any more than we will accidentally pray or pay tithing. We actively choose to believe, just like we choose to keep other commandments.”
We do not ‘accidently’ receive a testimony. It takes work and effort – and constant attention. This is could actually be a second part to last week’s message – The Parable of the Sower.
