Even the wicked are full of Mitzvos

Once, during a private audience, the Rebbe quoted a passage from the Talmud that states, “Even the wicked are full of mitzvos like seeds in a pomegranate.”

This Talmudic statement had bothered the man visiting the Rebbe for some time. He challenged the Rebbe, “If they are wicked, how can they possess so many mitzvos?”

The Rebbe smiled and answered, “If they possess so many mitzvos, how can they be considered wicked?” ~ Chicken Soup to Warm the Neshama
