Actions are directed

If it is true that we make plans and then commit them to God – then it is also true that God directs our actions.  Therefore, it is better to have a little, honestly earned, then to have much dishonestly gained for the end does not justify the means.

It is the excellence of our rational nature that by it we are capable of living to some known end, and of governing our lives and conduct by some rule, where brute creatures necessarily live and act at random, just as the present appetite influences them. Let us, then, make the most of this our prerogative by proposing to ourselves the noblest end of human life, and engaging in such a course of action as will reflect the greatest honour upon our nature, and be productive of the most lasting happiness.
