WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — Frank and Louie the cat was born with two faces, two mouths, two noses, three eyes — and lots of doubts about his future.

Now, 12 years after Marty Stevens rescued him from being euthanized because of his condition, the exotic blue-eyed rag doll cat is not only thriving, but has also made it into the 2012 edition of Guinness World Records as the longest-surviving member of a group known as Janus cats, named for a Roman god with two faces.

2. All of us have two faces at least: we have our calm, normal face, and we have our conflict face. It can be hard to submit both of these faces to demands of God’s Word, but that is what God calls us to do.

3. Have you noticed a different “you” when you are arguing with your spouse, angry at your boss, or frustrated with our elected officials?

4. Paul was a man who worked hard to keep one face, but it wasn’t easy. Yet how ever many faces he had, he submitted them to God's Word. He proved to be the ideal model for a leader in a conflict situation in the Corinthian church, but he is also a model for us in our conflict situations.
