Learn Torah in order to practice it


Avot 2:2 says, "Torah which does not involve work will be void, and cause sin."

To which Midrash Shemuel says, "This warns people to learn Torah [specifically] in order to guard and practice it. Mitzvah deeds are called 'work', especially when they are performed continually."

Have a great day,
