The parsha continues with Moshe comparing the Torah to rain. Just as rain is a life giving force, the Torah too is vital for our survival. Just as rain descends from above, we too received the Torah from above. Rain enables plants to grow; however, the rain does not create the seed or plant, similarly, the Torah allows the seed in one’s heart to grow and to develop to its full potential. Once a person dedicates his heart and mind to the Torah, only then will his studies be fruitful!
