Some people may attempt to grow in their Avodas Hashem
and feel they are not progressing. For this reason, it says יערף כמטר
Just as when it rains, we only see the effect it has on the plants after a
period of time, the same is with Avodas Hashem as we may not see results
An example of this we see in the world is The Chinese Bamboo.
The Chinese plant the seed. They then water and fertilize it the first year and
nothing happens. They do this again the second, third, and fourth year and
still nothing happens. They water and fertilize it again for the fifth year.
Sometime during the fifth year in a period of approximately six weeks, The
Chinese Bamboo Tree grows roughly 90 feet. So, did it grow 90 feet in six weeks
or in five years? Obviously, five years, since without the water and fertilizer
each year there would be no Chinese Bamboo Tree.
Rabbi Alt merited to learn under the tutelage of R’ Mordechai Friedlander Ztz”l for close to five years. He received Semicha from R’ Zalman Nechemia Goldberg. Rabbi Alt has written on numerous topics for various websites and publications. He lives with his wife and family in a suburb of Yerushalayim where he studies, writes and teaches.
