So what’s the difference between a Flea Man and a Free Man (speaking of mankind)?

A Flea Man is like a parasite that attaches itself to a host.  With little or no regard for the host’s well-being, the parasite is driven by fear to seek its own survival above all else.  A Free Man, one the other hand, is never compelled by fear and selfishness, but always looks out for the interests of others.

Philippians 2: 3-4 says, “Do nothing for selfishness of empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself: and do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.”

All of us at one time or another act a little more like a Flea Man than a Free Men, especially in marriage.  Why?  Because of the fear regarding identity (am I valuable) and welfare (are my needs going to be met).

In the depths of the heart, do you feel loved and valued by your spouse?  Do you feel that your needs are being met within your marriage.?  If not, then it is very likely that you will unconsciously be compelled to seek to get your value and needs met somewhere else; unless…

Unless your own heart is secure in the fact that you are loved by God and therefore truly valued.  When that becomes the reality of your life, you will no longer look to your spouse as the host that will meet your needs.  Rather, you will be free to unselfishly meet his or her needs without regard for self.
