The practical definition of repentance


"A dice-player is not valid as a witness or judge, if dice-playing is his only trade [as he fails to contribute to civilization]...

"When is he considered to have changed his ways? When he breaks his dice and completely rejects dice-playing, such that he won't even play dice for free."

(Talmud, Sanhedrin 25a-b)

Have a great day,
