"Mitzrayim" (Egypt) means constriction, limitation. The spiritual Egyptian exile is the animal soul's restricting and concealing the G-dly soul so severely that the G-dly soul is compressed to the degree that it is diminished and obscured. "Exodus from Egypt" is the removal of the constriction and bounds; i.e. the intellect in the brain illuminates the heart, bringing about fine character traits translated into actual practice...
– Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak of Lubavitch (as quoted in Hayom Yom, Shevat 4)

Sincerity is not enough. You have to do the right thing.

Why is it this way? Why can't we be judged by our intentions alone?

So that we will know that we are small, and truth is very large. It is truth that stands at the center, and we that orbit about it.

Tanya, chapter 38.
