Illinois Cook County is seeking ways to reduce their budget. Would this advice be the wisest, best ever, safest, humanitarian, way to accomplish the task?

A Chicago Tribune Voice of the People article titled: Cook County’s Health Care Budget, voiced two Doctors concerns of the coming year trimmed down budget.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to relate three ancient wisdom proverbs to how to reduce medical costs by as much as 3.5 billion dollars a year.

King Solomon

By justice a king gives a country stability, but those who are greedy for bribes tear it down. (Proverb 29:4)

When the sentence for a crime is not quickly carried out, people’s hearts are filled with schemes to do wrong. (Proverb 8:11)

7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. (Proverb 1:9)

What’s My Point?

“Cook County shootings cost taxpayers 2.5 billion a year.”

My point is The County needs to understood and enact the wisdom advice of the above three proverbs to end the folly of the shootings taking place.

In My Opinion

The County Board needs to wise up to understand the wisdom of the above three proverbs written 3000 years ago apply today in Cook County.

The first two proverbs pertain to fears needed by both the County leaders and those using guns.

The third proverb pertains to teaching children in youth the only wisest fear in their lives to guide them on the wisest direction on their paths to prevent them from never “gaining” what is the real purpose and goal and reason they were blessed to have been born.

“What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?” (Mark 8:36)

“Black parents love charter schools and voucher-supported private school vouchers because they teach values, self-respect, and hope. But no, if this option for poor or lower-income parents has more Democrat opposition than ever.”

18 Of a truth, Lord, the kings of Assyria have laid waste all the nations, and their countries,

19 And have cast their gods into the fire: for they were no gods, but the work of men’s hands, wood and stone: therefore they have destroyed them. ( Isaiah Chapter 37)
