The sleep of death

A couple of days ago I attended a funeral in which the minister alluded to the Biblical references that compare death to sleep (e.g. Matt. 9:24; John 11:11-13). He pointed out that sleep is (1) ordinary, (2) necessary, and (3) temporary.

The average person spends about one-third of their life in sleep. Oh how we need to make the other two-thirds count.
