Alma 4

10 And thus ended the eighth year of the reign of the judges; and the wickedness of the church was a great stumbling-block to those who did not belong to the church; and thus the church began to fail in its progress.

The example we set as disciples of Christ is an invitation or a barrier to those who might seek the truth. There is an old saying: “What you do is so loud I can’t hear what you say.” Our walk in life has to be worthy of emulation or it becomes an obstacle to others who see what we do and then ignore what we say. This is especially true for our children.
