As soon as you realize that your actions and your life affects others around you and theirs affects you, it does not take "spiritual benefit" to motivate you to be a good person. If someone could prove to you that there is no God or afterlife, would that make it ok to murder your neighbor and eat the food from his pantry? Of course not. Actions still have consequinces even if there is no final judgement and most people would rather live in a world where we help each other than one where it's every man for himself.
