Currency – money, legal tender, frequency, popularity, circulation, commonness
The currency of the world system is money. It flows from hand to hand; from business to business; from nation to nation. It is said that money makes the world go around. When men and women create giant storehouses to compile their own personal wealth, ignoring the plight of their fellow man, the system itself begins to implode with all kinds of maladies.
The currency of the human body is blood. It circulates throughout each of the body’s cells, supplying the needed nutrients at the right time and in the right amount. In a healthy human body each cell takes only the amount of blood it needs and passes on the rest to the other cells. If a cell hoards blood it becomes engorged, mutates and causes the body to manifest illness of some kind.
The currency of the Kingdom of God is love. We are to receive the love of God who is our Source and pass that love on to others. When we hoard what we consider to be the symbols of ‘love’ to ourselves – things like material possessions, relationships, jobs etc – it causes us to become ‘inflated’ while others in the body are ‘bankrupt’. This imbalance in the distribution of love creates a crisis in the Body of Christ.
What are you doing to ensure that the currency of the Kingdom of God remains solvent?
