Good and Better!

Jude 5
Now I desire to remind you, though you were once for all fully informed, that he who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe.

It’s good to be saved out of Egypt.  It’s better to remain faithful to the God who saved you and not be destroyed afterwards.  It’s good to be born.  It’s better to stay alive after you are born.  It’s good to be born again… Well, you do the math.
