FLIP-FLOPPERS

[31a middle] R’ Nachman: Since a Beis Din (Jewish court) awards one party as the victor, they may also later change the verdict (if the later evidence proves otherwise). We are not worried about the fact that there may be a Zilzul (degradation/mockery of) Beis Din. [Even if they go back and forth in rulings of who a rightful owner is [and possession of property changes multiple times], this is OK because ultimately they are getting to the truth].

D-E-ep Thoughts: We should never be ashamed to admit we were wrong. As long as we are acting within the framework of Halacha and searching for Emes (truth), we should stand tall and proud. Sometimes, Hashem puts on on winding paths to test our fortitude throughout our journeys.

Today’s P.I.P. (Put Into Practice) TIP: We should never be too stubborn to listen to other people’s’ opinions [even if they are contradictory to our own (for we might even learn something new)].
