About This Quote
It’s only a book until someone loses their soul! This quote means that people can read any book they want, but until someone loses their soul it is just a book to them. We all have books in our life that have changed us forever. The Bible, for example, is an amazing book, but nobody could say that about it without reading it. We all know the story of the loss of the soul in James 1:21-25.
We need to understand God’s Word deeply in order to understand how important every moment in our lives is. The Bible tells us that we are to be diligent with our time and cultivate wisdom to help us grow into the person that God wants us to be.
