The Brisker Rav zt”l had an interesting observation about the conflict between Moshe and Korach.  He notes that the Torah says that there will never be another conflict like it again.  What was so unique about the showdown between Moshe and Korach?  The Brisker Rav suggests that in general when there is a disagreement or conflict, each side has some elements that they are correct about, yet nevertheless one side is more right than the other.  When it came to Moshe and Korach, Moshe was one hundred percent on the right.  That detail is virtually impossible when it comes to disagreements.  This is an important lesson for us when we may become in conflict with others.  If each side is able to recognize and admit to which part of the conflict the other side is correct, it may be a lot easier to resolve the argument all together. Good Shabbos!
