Song of TorahShall I say that just as honey has wax which is unfit for food, so also the words of Torah? Not so, since it is compared to milk: just as milk is pure, so are the words of the Torah pure, as it says, “Gold and glass cannot equal it (Job 28:17).” Shall I say that just as milk is insipid, so are the words of Torah? Not so, since it is compared to milk and honey: just as milk and honey when  combined do not injure the body, so the words of the Torah, as it says, “It shall be health to your belly (Proverbs 3:8),” and, “For they are life to those who find them (4:22).” (Shir Hashirim Rabbah


As we have seen there are numerous approaches one can take when studying Torah. No single approach is sufficient. The midrash is telling us that our goal must be to combine all the different approaches into a unified approach to Torah. We must take all our life experiences, our strengths, our accomplishments, our learning, and our mitzvot, and combined them into a unified approach each time we studied Torah.
