What has money got to do with blood?

In many ways, money is like blood.

Blood is a body fluid in humans and other animals that delivers necessary substances such as nutrients and oxygen to the cells and transports metabolic waste products away from those same cells. Blood is circulated around the body through blood vessels by the pumping action of the heart.

In human society, money largely enables the exchange of goods and services, so that people can provide for what others need, and receive what others can provide for them. On the positive side, money carries the spiritual qualities of humans’ work, creativity, care and concern for one another through it’s flow in the economy.

Next time you need an analogy for money, think of blood and you will realise how precious and important money is for human society and yourself. It helps prevent us from gross greed or dishonesty when dealing with money, knowing that the other party needs that ‘blood’ to provide what we need. Also, it motivates us to participate in society to provide for what others need so this ‘blood’ will flow into us in order that we can continue to function as part of the human race.
