this vort is from rav beinish ginsburg in michlalah.
Parshat Bamidbar always comes out the shabbos before Shavuot, so the question is why? (this vort is from Rav Yaakov Kaminetzky- his sefer Emet L'Yaakov)

Ready? this one is good.
its from Rabbi Leff, in Eretz Yisroel.
According to one shita in the Gemara, who most Rishonim follow, Hashem said that the Torah was to be given on the sixth day of Sivan, but MOshe added one day more of preparation of his own da'as.
and the question is, then, why do we celebrate Torah on the sixth of Sivan, if it wasn;t even given yet!!!
he says, that the purpose of giving the Torah is not just that it should be here, the purpose of Torah is that people should live by it, to learn it and follow what it says, to listen to Hashem. this is why the gemara calls people foolish if they stand up for a sefer torah, but not for a talmid chochom, because it emans they forgot the purpose of the torah.
what we celebrate on Shavuous is that Hashem chose US to be the ones to do that. we are the ones, and ONLY US, who get to live our lives al pi torah. and therefroe, the Torah cannot be given without us.
If we were anytihng but indispensable, Hashem would hvae given the Torah on the sixth day, regardless of whether we were prepared or not. the fact that Hashem "POSTPONED THE WEDING" FOR US, SHOWS THAT WE ARE THE KALLAH, YOU CANNOT HAVE THE WEDDING WITHOUT US.
on shavuous we celebrate "Atoh bichartabu" that we were chosen.
we should be zoche to feel fortunate to be Jews-on Shavuous and for the rest of our lives.
