Make It Count

There are Mitzvos that are linked to specific days or weeks throughout the year, but the only Mitzvah linked to an entire month is during the month of Iyar – the Counting of the Omer. This is a lesson for all year round: A person must continuously grow in matters of holiness, always seeking new ways to take on more Mitzvos.
Lubavitcher Rebbe
Make It Count
Disc 48, Program 191

Event Date: 6 Iyar 5742 - April 29, 1982

There are Mitzvos that are linked to specific days or weeks throughout the year, but the only Mitzvah linked to an entire month is during the month of Iyar – the Counting of the Omer. This is a lesson for all year round: A person must continuously grow in matters of holiness, always seeking new ways to take on more Mitzvos. Even for children: as much Torah as you study at school, you can always set aside some of your own free time to learn one more verse of Torah; you can always give one more penny to charity or do one more good deed for another person.

And G-d will certainly reciprocate by increasing His blessings to you, your family and your teachers - just as we recite an additional blessing for Him, each day that we count the Omer.
