1 Nephi 2:16

"And it came to pass that I, Nephi, being exceedingly young, nevertheless being large in stature, and also having great desires to know of the mysteries of God, wherefore, I did cry unto the Lord; and behold he did visit me, and did soften my heart that I did believe all the words which had been spoken by my father; wherefore, I did not rebel against him like unto my brothers."

Nephi provides a great example of what people should do if they do not understand the ways of the Lord. Even though we was young he desired to know the "Mysteries of God." The first thing we should do if we want to know as well is pray. This opens the path to receive personal revelation. By the Spirit of God He reveals many things to those who seek diligently.

By the Spirit Nephi felt the power of God and had no desire to rebel against his father. The knowledge of God was more readily available to Nephi as he desired to know and searched with an open mind and willing heart. He became an example to his family after he gain that knowledge. Even now Nephi stands as an example to followers of Jesus Christ. Children around the world read of Nephi's example and want to be like him, so he still stands as a witness for generations now.
