Worthy Blueprint

In the Old Testament book of Isaiah, chapter 11, the prophet tells what the coming Messiah, Jesus, will be like and what characteristics the Lord will give him.

What a great blueprint to emulate, and to pray over our families.

And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him (Jesus), 
the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,  
the Spirit of counsel and might, 
the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord  
And his delight shall be in the fear of the Lord
He shall not judge by what his eyes see,
or decide disputes by what his ears hear, 
but with righteousness he shall judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth;
