A Wrong Example

Ruth 1:4-5 KJV And they took them wives of the women of Moab; the name of the one was Orpah, and the name of the other Ruth: and they dwelled there about ten years. [5] And Mahlon and Chilion died also both of them; and the woman was left of her two sons and her husband.
 
Elimelech lead his family to a place God told them not to go. He made this move out of fear instead of faith. Elimelech died in Moab. His sons, Mahlon and Chilion, made a wrong decision and married women of Moab and they also died in Moab. When we make wrong decisions as Elimelech did, we set the wrong example for those following us. We must learn to follow Christ and make right choices, not only for our life; but for the lives of those following us.
