One Seed Planted can Yield Millions

One small sunflower yields 800 seeds-One large sunflower yields 2000

Did you know that one sunflower seed yields a sunflower- which then produces 2000 sunflower seeds?  Plant those 2000 seeds and they’ll yield 4,000,000 seeds!!!  Four million from one seed planted, in two growing seasons—is phenomenal!! The same is true for most seeds planted, the growth is exponential.  Not to mention all who benefit from the plant! In the two minutes we watched this sunflower, many were reaping the benefits!

1 Corinthians 3:6-9 says;

 “I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow.  So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow.  The one who plants and the one who waters have one purpose, and they will each be rewarded according to their own labor.  For we are co-workers in God’s service; you are God’s field, God’s building.”

Most of you know that I am on the Proverbs 31 Ministry speaking team, and have been for 10 years.  I’ve witnessed an unimaginable harvest from the seeds planted and watered in our ministry.  Millions are reaping huge benefits from the fruit of the labor.


~Over a ½ million people read our devotions every day( 700,000)!

~Thousands send our  devotions, radio segments, books and Bible studies to non-Christian family and friends.

~Our current Online Bible study has 24,000 people signed up!  42 countries are represented in that 24,000!! Women who have no access to any other Bible study are signed up!! I’ve had women from other countries who aren’t allowed a Bible in their possession say they’re doing our Bible Study and reading our devotions online. It is life to them.

~We offer teaching tools to equip people to become better at planting, watering and harvesting.  We have a new    program coming this fall- called Compel. It will teach people to be better writers of the message God has given them.

~Thousands have accepted Christ at our events and through our online click “Do you know Jesus?”

~Countless people are ministered to online, on the phone and at events through prayer and encouragement. Marriages have been restored, the lost found, the weary rejuvenated and hopeless given hope through P31.

It is an honor to be a part of a ministry where everyone on the team is laboring for the same cause, “to go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature… teaching  them to observe all the things  He commanded…” (Matthew 18:19-20, paraphrase). As a matter of a fact I’m at the P31 office today, YAY!! Ministry never stops here!

Proverbs 31 ministries is literally going into all the world planting seeds and watching the harvest come in exponentially!

Would you help us? When you give to Proverbs 31 Ministries you are reaching women across the globe, right where they are, right when they need it. Your investment will help plant a seed.  From that seed, millions could benefit!  Thank you!

    Sharon, the Proverbs 31 team is awesome and has impacted so many lives, including mine. The devotionals and OBSs have ministered to my heart in ways you can't imagine! They saved me from from trying to commit suicide for a second time because you all constantly reminded me that I am special to God, flaws and all. And, He loves me right where I am! I don't have to be perfect and "put together" to approach Him. I feel like you ladies are apart of my family, especially since I've moved 10 hours from my family. Thank you for all you do, it matters!

    • Wow! thank You Lord!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for sharing!! Love and hugs from me and all of us at P31!
