We Have Too Many Kayak Men
Instead of Canoe Fathers

Adam Was The First Kayak Father In The Bible


Genesis 18:19
“For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the Lord, to do righteousness and justice, that the Lord may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.”

Joshua 25:15
“And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the river, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

Owning It Matters

Be Real

Be Engaged

It’s Possible To Be Present But Not Present

1 Sam 3:13
For I (The Lord) have told him (Eli) that I will judge his house forever for the iniquity which he knows, because his sons made themselves vile, and he did not restrain them.

1 Sam 8:3
But his (Samuel’s) sons did not walk in his ways; they turned aside after dishonest gain, took bribes, and perverted justice.

Be An Example

And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord.
