A very simple concept in life some people ignore is sowing and reaping. The act of sowing is anything we put our focus, time, energy, or money into. Reaping is the results or consequences in what we have sown. The Bible gives great education on this concept and how it can influence our external rewards.
We must recognize that our life is one big field waiting for the right seeds to be planted. There is a famous saying, that is still said today, "you reap what you sow." This statement is actually very true and links back to the Bible. Looking over our own lives, and taking out the bad seeds and replacing them with a seed of determination. A concept like this can bring a change for the better. One day, you'll reap a huge reward from God, whether on earth or in His kingdom.

"Killing Jesus," premiering this month on the National Geographic Channel, is based on the best-selling book of the same name by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard. In the television dramatization, the described "great king and warrior" Herod the Great is portrayed by Emmy Award-winning actor Kelsey Grammer — long admired by fans for his television persona Dr. Frasier Crane.
Grammer ("Cheers," "Frasier") was noted as saying during a press event by the Los Angeles Times that Herod "wasn't necessarily evil — he was just a guy who had to do some despicable things to maintain a balance of power."
Though Herod the Great died not long after Jesus' birth, in "Killing Jesus," as well as in the biblical account, the ruler plays a pivotal role in the early life of the god-man worshipped as savior by more than 2.2 billion people around the world. more >>
A former Republican congressional committee counsel predicts that the Supreme Court will legalize same-sex marriage in coming months, but does not believe that decision will change the Church.
"I think the Supreme Court is probably going to come down on this 7-to-2, and I have every reason to believe that they will legalize same-sex marriage based on what we call the equal protection clause and the precedent of Loving vs. Virginia 1967," former attorney Sophia Nelson, author of The Woman Code, recently told The Christian Post, referring to the landmark civil rights decision that struck down miscegenation laws.
The Christian author and award-winning journalist supports traditional marriage, however, she said that while Christians have the right to exercise their religious liberties, they must also respect the law and leave the judgment to Jesus. more >>
Mark Burnett and his wife Roma Downey recently recounted the start of their television series "The Bible" as well as its follow-up, "A.D," which premieres on NBC this Easter Sunday.
The power couple are two of the most influential producers in Hollywood today, especially in Christian media. However, Burnett admitted that their contemporaries scoffed at the initial idea of a television series based on the Bible. The series premiered on The History Channel in March of 2013.
"Everyone thought we lost our minds," the executive producer told KPRC Houston. "When we said we were making the Bible into a series everybody thought it was a joke and nobody would watch 'The Bible,' but 100 million Americans tuned in. We knew we had to continue. We were up against 'Game of Thrones' and 'The Walking Dead' and we were the most-watched cable program that year." more >>
