Forgotten Quote

In this message, Pastor Ryan said he would utilize an Ellen White quote, but then forgot to mention it in the sermon. Here is that quote for you now: 

“Judas possessed financial ability and would have been of value to the church had he taken home to his heart the lessons which Christ was giving by rebuking all selfishness, fraud, and avarice, even in the little matters of life”
