Sleep Deprivation is Dangerous (INFOGRAPHIC)

text size A A A

Even during Bible times there were people suffering from sleep deprivation. In Ecclesiastes 5:12 (ESV) Solomon wrote, "Sweet is the sleep of a laborer, whether he eats little or much, but the full stomach of the rich will not let him sleep."

Although the Bible never prescribes a cure for sleep deprivation, it does offer some encouragement.

 In Psalm 127:2 (NLT) we read, "It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones." Matthew 11:28 (NIV) says, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.'

This infographic by Health Central examines the dangers of sleep deprivation. It reports that "60 million Americans have chronic sleep disorders."
