Actions - agreement necessary between Actions and belief

There are people who hold no religious beliefs and behave well, and others who have faith but behave badly, and it is a shame for both of them. Why? Those who naturally behave according to the rules of justice, honesty and goodness without consciously basing their actions on a spiritual principle are deprived of something essential which would strengthen them in their convictions and sustain them through difficulties and trials. How can human beings imagine that the source of their most precious qualities lies within themselves? How can they fail to sense that beyond them exists an Entity who not only possesses these qualities in all their fullness but who is the source of them and nourishes them? As for those who believe in God and who do nothing – or very little! – to manifest divine virtues, that is even worse.
