There is a lot of ethics which on the surface seem noble, but are conditioned by ulterior motives. We will see people doing ethical actions with all sorts of strings attached.
Why these things happen often becomes clear. There is a sort of conditionally where one does the right thing for the wrong reason.
Often the actions are themselves devoid of moral quality because the motive is bad. The right action done for the wrong reasons often is morally bankrupt.
Ethical action is often of an unconditional nature. It is modeled on God's ethics where grace is given out freely.
We receive grace freely and have blessings flow freely from God and our ethic should in return flow freely.
God has not placed conditionality on grace. The only condition is faith. If we ask we will receive there is no conditionality.
