In parashat Korach it says "And Moshe was very angry, and he said to Hashem, "Do not look at their offering." (Bamidbar 16:15) Rashi brings down somewhere that every Jew had a portion in the Tamid karbon and Moshe didn't want Korach to be rewarded for his portion...but if Korach was a heretic, why would G-d reward him for the mitzvah of the Tamid offering?

Even if you're a heretic, you still get rewarded for some parts of what you did. Even if you didn't have good intentions, a Jew still gets credit for the little bit that he did.
