enter site DIVIDING DONKEYS
[35a bottom] Mishnah: If a man exchanges a cow for a donkey and it calves, and similarly if a man sells a female slave and she bears a child, if the seller says that the birth took place before the sale and the purchaser claims that it took place after the sale, they must divide the value of the offspring.
enter Prac-T-cal Tidbits: It is important to remember the need for compromise. Even when we feel that our ideas are the most right, we must be ready and willing to include other viewpoints as well. This helps us to develop humility and develop stronger relationships.
