MOTH

Literally “consumer” or “waster,” it is an insect whose destructive power is used to illustrate the result of sin (Psalms 39:11) and the judgment of God (Hosea 5:12). The moth's weakness is used to speak of the frailty of man (Job 4:19). Jesus urged His followers to avoid the temptation to accumulate wealth on earth where the moth could destroy it, but to lay up immortal treasures in heaven (Matthew 6:19-20). See Insects.
