The Value of a Speech

Janet Yellen

Janet Yellen, president-elect Joe Biden’s choice to be treasury secretary, had to file disclosure forms as part of her nomination. This process revealed that Yellen collected over $7 million in speaking fees from major financial firms and tech giants over the past two years.

I suppose that’s pretty good work if you can find it! I am often amazed at the amount of money some people will pay to certain elites just to give a talk. A speech can indeed have quite a bit of value!

Our words might not have nearly as much monetary worth, but when we tell someone that they can have eternal life through Jesus—well, that’s a pretty valuable speech! 

“But we have this treasure in jars of clay…”—2 Corinthians 4:7.
