We went to the Rennaissance Faire last year, and I found $20 in cash in the parking lot.  We waited for a few minutes in case someone came running back for it, but how else do you let a whole crowd of people know you found money without anyone falsely claiming it?  If it was more than $100 I would have turned it in, anyone losing that much would be looking for it. 

Conversely, I once found a wallet while shopping in Target, and just turned it into the security guard.  Hopefully he found it’s owner 🙂

a few years ago, when FI and I started tithing as a couple at church, we found money in the parking lot and decided to give it. We were really poor, I mean that $20 would have fed us lunch for 2 days. We didn’t think twice though, it was the right thing to do. Later that day, we were out grocery shopping and this lady left some items under her cart. Obviously we grabbed the stuff and gave it to her. She was so grateful and handed FI 2 bills. He was like no it’s okay, seriously we just didn’t want you to forget your groceries! She insisted and seeing as how we thought it was only $2 we took it and left. When we got in the car we realized it was $40 and we thought she made a mistake. She was already gone by that time so we went home.

I finally understand that God will always provide. That was such a turning point for us as a couple and as Christians. 

We put the $40 into a savings account and we tithe regularly 🙂
