Pointless Hatred

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

There is no more cautionary concept in Judaism than that of mitzvah haba b’avera – the act of tainting a good deed by committing a bad deed in the process.

 

I’m sure most halachic decisors would concur that we are not to be judged simply on a system of how many mitzvot we rack up in our lives (like points in a game) but by the manner in which we conduct ourselves and the consideration and thoughtfulness we put into our actions.
