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.
