I lost 153.84 dollars yesterday, this is the money I kept for my tithe and I took it while I was going to the church. When I got to the church, I discovered that the money was no longer in my pocket, I could not ascertained the exact place where I lost the money because I entered two buses before I got to the church yesterday morning. Since yesterday I have been down emotionally, even I slept before 8pm because of the impact on my life.

I am with you. Remember Job in the Bible who lost everything he had? It will remind us that if we lost something like you did, it is not much! Just like Christ when He was crucified. So cheer up and look at it as God may have a plan for that money! Merry Christmas!!

of course, god may also be a lie made up by those who take money off others

sounds to me like you have been a victim of crime. Whilst your attention was distracted, someone nipped in and relieved you of your money blessed be

Hi,there! Don't be sad.It's the holiday season right now.Thieves are pretty active these days.So whenever we're shopping or taking a bus,we should pay much attention to our handbag and pocket.It's pretty crowded especially at some places downtown,so be careful next time and always watch out.You don't need to be upset,just take it as a lesson and try to avoid those kinds of things in the future.I'd like to wish you a Merry Christmas and get rid of the bad emotion.Good luck and have fun today^_^

come on , cheer up. it is nothing , you should care something more than money ,though money is every important to us . i think it must be stoled by someone one the bus ,some of my friends often run into this trouble , sometimes them lost their new-bought cellphone or other expensive things.

I'm sorry you lost that money, ok, but I have a different perspective for you. You had every intention of giving that tithe. God knows that. Maybe it was in his plan for you to drop it. Maybe you lost it on the bus that had the mother with two little babies and no money for food for this holiday season. Maybe she found that money and was blessed beyond her wildest imaginations. There are a million things that could have happened with that money. If you believe God has a plan, though, you should also believe that you are part of that plan and not sweat over the money. God knows your heart better than anyone. Don't get too legalistic about the tithe and know that your heart was in the right place.

blueunicorn, these are the words i used to console and comfort myself yesterday, though a pregnant woman carrying a baby sat close to me and i don't know if she is the one that found the money. infact, it was a big surprise to me. thanks, but it really amazed me.
