Now regarding your question about the money being collected for God’s people in Jerusalem. You should follow the same procedure I gave to the churches in Galatia.
On the first day of each week, you should each put aside a portion of the money you have earned. 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 to go along, they can travel with me.
