Now about the money being collected for the Christians in Jerusalem: You should follow the same procedures I gave to the churches in Galatia.
On every Lord's Day, a each of you should put aside some amount of money in relation to what you have earned and save it for this offering. Don't wait until I get there and then try to collect it all at once.
When I come I will write letters of recommendation for the messengers you choose to deliver your gift to Jerusalem.
And if it seems appropriate for me also to go along, then we can travel together.
