The Mei Hashiloach explains that when Hashem described the Jewish people as “stiff necked”, the intention was not completely negative.  As with many things in life, some character traits have positive and negative aspects within them.  While Hashem was deeply disappointed with the behavior of the Jewish people in terms of the din of the golden calf, He may also have felt that our stubbornness would help us preserve and persevere as a people when faced with challenging moments throughout our history. This lesson can certainly be applied to each of us on an individual level as well.  May we try to focus on the positive elements of our character and ensure that they are dominant. Good Shabbos!
