His name is Frank. His name is Louie. No, Louie is not his middle name. That’s because Frank and Louie is a cat with two faces, two mouths, two noses and three eyes. This cat seems to get along quite well with these two faces. That’s not always true of people. Sometimes we try to show one face to the world and hide the one that shows our real self. Paul warned, “God is not mocked.” He looks past our posturing and play acting and sees right into our hearts. We may give to the poor, sing in the choir, and appear to be something far different from what we really are on the inside. The Psalmist David knew this, writing, “O Lord, you have searched me and known me…you understand my thought afar off…are acquainted with all my ways…there is not a word on my tongue but behold O Lord, You know it altogether.” While two-facedness may fool people, we cannot fool God.
