Hand in Glove
Hold up a glove.
The glove, by itself, does not pick up anything. It is limp, helpless.
Slide your hand into it.
The glove now has dexterity and power.
It has become a gifted, smart glove that can accomplish innumerable tasks.
Money is a glove through which the hand of human personality expresses itself.
The glove by itself is neither good nor bad.
The hand in the glove can take on either self-centered or self-giving characteristics.
It can either open to give or grasp in greed.
