The advantage of the Am Haoretz-Vort For Parshas Emor

Parshas Hashavua- Parshas Emor 
Sotah 21a
באגרא --- ונטרן להו לגברייהו עד דאתו מבי מדרשא

 The Chasam Sofer( Parshas Emor) writes:
” The Am Haoretz who supports Torah has an advantage over the Talmid Chacham who learns. When he supports Torah he is rewarded even if the Talmid Chacham is negligent and is not learning, what should he have done and why should he lose out" .

The Netziv said Pshat  on the Pasuk שלום רב לאהבי תורתיך- ואין למו מכשול 
Ohavei Toirosecho refers to the supporters of Torah. On them it is said Ein Lomo Michshol. For them things can’t go wrong. They will be rewarded regardless  if the Talmidei Chachamim learns or not.

The Chasam Sofer’s Sevara (logic)  would probably apply also for the wives
who send their husbands to learn and wait at home for them. They too should
be rewarded even if their husbands go to the Bais Hamedrash and Batel
(waste) their time there. What else could she have done?
