Immediately after the curses (should we fail to observe the mitzvos) in our sedra we have the portion which deals with the values of people should they donate the monetary value which they are worth to the Mikdash (erechin). What is the connection between these two topics? One explanation is that after hearing all the curses one might feel down - one could feel that they do not have much value in this world if we can stoop to such a low level to deserve such punishments. Thus, the concept of erechin is mentioned right away to tell us that we do have a value - we are important and we have great potential should we make the effort to try and utilise it.
