I am leery of any strategy that requires no repentance.
If you think that you are getting providence on your side by scheming better,
By being more shrewd,
By working harder,
By learning skills,
Then it is possible, perhaps likely, that you are deceived.
Remember that God rains upon the just and the unjust.
And so, receiving a blessing from God
Does not show that you serve him.
And who knows but what you serve a lower power.
Especially if the God you serve requires no repentance.
