"Perhaps you once dreamed of sowing fertile fields of generosity. But reality has taught you to be more cautious. What if I give away too much? What if there's not enough left for me? What if. . ." As Christians, we know that we should give but sometimes it's so hard to take that step of faith and let go when it comes to our finances. Under the growing pressures to make ends meet each month, it's easy to become irrational in our thinking about God, his faithfulness, and our role as stewards of his resources. Author Andy Stanley reminds us that if we truly believe that God is who he says he is we have no reason to fear. Doesn't it make sense to trust the God of the Universe with your finances? Isn't it time to put aside the worry and start living in confidence? Fields of Gold will change the way you think about money and giving. When we truly understand God's power and presence, we can't help but trust him to meet our needs. And once we realize that it really is better to give than to receive, there's no limit to what God will do with our gifts!
Sharing true stories of people who gave generously even when they didn't have much, Stanley confronts our anxieties about money, revealing that open-hearted giving is an invitation for God to get involved in our finances. As you move from guilt and fear into confidence, security, and excitement, you'll see God's abundant provision for your whole lifetime!
"Fields of Gold" is a practical and inspirational book on the principle of sowing and reaping. If we sow fear, what will be our harvest? And conversely, if we sow faith, what will we grow? This book moves the reader beyond fear and guilt about money and into confidence, security, and excitement. Andy Stanley unpacks our irrational fears about money, helping us to discover that generous giving is actually an invitation for our heavenly Father to get involved in our finances and resupply us with enough seed to sow generously throughout our lifetime.
