Why Death is Better Than Birth

Death is a Sermon
Death is an Entrance
Death is a Background

Ecclesiastes 7 : 1 - 4

Ecclesiastes 7
A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one's birth.
It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his heart.
Sorrow is better than laughter: for by the sadness of the countenance the heart is made better.
The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning; but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth.
