  • same instructions to all churches, vs 1

Where the money you contribute comes from

  • The amount depends on how much the Lord has helped you earn, vs 2

State of readiness

  • Don’t wait until I get there and then try to collect it all at once, vs 2

Liberality – give freely

  • When I come I will send your loving gift with a letter to Jerusalem, vs 3
