Are moths a big problem?

How did the message
bring out this explanation; well let us look at the passage.  Moths are not a
big problem for me along with rust.  Eastern areas where Jesus came from.
treasures, consisted partly in costly clothes stored up.  Well; moths were a big
problem for them.  “Rust” (to their metal coins) added to “moths” can be
translated into being “consumed” and “used up.”  Our Lord is teaching us how
perishable are earthly treasures, in heaven are treasures that are imperishable
and can not be taken from you.  Then Jesus points out “that” which our heart
values most will be our god.  Martin Luther puts it this way; “What a man loves,
that is his god.  For he carries it in his heart, he goes about with it night
and day, he sleeps and wakes with it.”  Having earthly treasures are not wrong;
but many flatter themselves that all is right between them and God, while their
closest attention, anxiety, work, and time are exhausted upon these earthly
pursuits.
