Folding a set on the flop?

I recently played in a 1/3 no limit game , under the gun I picked up 88 with about 160 behind me I limped so did 4 other players the flop came 9 8 10 rainbow suits I checked the middle position made it 10 dollars 3 players folded I min raised it to 20 , the player that made it 10 makes it 40 on top his stack is over 400 at this point do I fold my remaining 140 behind me? I know he has a straight , I say thinking for 30 seconds and shove the rest he snap calls with 6 7 and I don't pair up. I'm just wondering if that was a terrible move? Knowing your player has the made straight but trying to pair the board with 2 cards to come? Maybe I'm not good enough to fold a set on the flop?
