BELONGING BODIES

[9b bottom] Rava: One may not self-incriminate himself through his own testimony.
RambaM: It is possible that some masochistic/depressed people admit guilt only to be punished/killed. Radvaz: Since our bodies do not belong to us (and are really only lent to us by Hashem) we have no right to destroy/harm them.  

D-E-ep Thoughts: Instead of getting lost in pride of “ownership,” “rights” and “entitlement,” we need to focus on our ‘obligations’ and what we can GIVE to our family, friends, and societies.

Today’s P.I.P. (Put Into Practice) TIP: If we get caught up in an argument about something we think we have coming to us, pause to recognize that we must only deal with the ‘Store Owner’ and not argue with simple salesmen [and know that everything we have is from Him and for our very best].
