“One who learns Torah in order to teach will be granted by Heaven success in both learning and teaching” — Rabbi Yishmael son of Rabbi Yochanan ben Berokah (Avot 4:5)

One who does his learning of Torah in a manner that includes the teaching of others is guaranteed success not only in his teaching but in his learning as well. Although he sacrifices time from his own learning, he will not suffer any loss because G-d will bless him with the wisdom he seeks.
