Read 1 Samuel 4
Israel is fighting with the Philistines (they still are today too), and losing. Apparently some of them remember the stories of Moses and Joshua going to battle with the Arc and winning. Of course the reason wasn't the Arc, it was what was represented. By bringing the Arc first they placed God first. In this case they look at the Arc in some superstitious manner, expecting God to work for them just because they brought the Arc. It's become no longer a representation of God living with them but an idol. And because of this attitude they lose it to their enemies.
