Prosper - tselach - צלח

Over the years the word "prosper" has been used and abused by many.
it had been referred to materialism and wealth, although it speaks differently according to the scriptures.
I would like to share that my understanding of it means the richness of  succeeding in understanding and wisdom. A  life changing knowledge that reveals obedience and full respect to someone that you truly love and someone ready to teach you all along.
it will be bumpy along the way but I assure you that you will make a progress in your character, in your lifestyle., and even in your speech.
for who would listen to you if  your speech is not gracious and merciful. who would believe you if your life is not a mirror of good example. and who would like to hear you if your character ruffles pride?
the scriptures has hidden messages, as we look at the life of the children of Israel departing from Egypt to Canaan, they had a lot of struggles. their whole being was at the process of refining. 


m 1 Chronicles 22:11: "the LORD be with thee; and prosper thou, and build the house of the LORD thy God,"
1 Chronicles 22:13: "Then shalt thou prosper, if thou takest heed to fulfill the statutes and judgments"
1 Chronicles 29:23: "instead of David his father, and prospered; and all Israel obeyed"
2 Chronicles 7:11: "in the house of the LORD, and in his own house, he prosperously effected."
2 Chronicles 13:12: "of your fathers; for ye shall notprosper."
