From Strawberry Rhubarb Theology:

Books, People

We must not live in the world of books, but in the world of real people. Yet, all that is worth saying to them of lasting value comes from books.
--William Still, The Work of the Pastor (Christian Focus, 2010), 101-2

  1. What a great quote! I think it is so easy to fall into idolatry, especially when it comes to knowledge, and that gained from books.

    So I am often asking myself the question, 'Are my affections in the right place?' and then, 'What encouragement do I hope to give others through what I may glean from things read in books?'

    I think I need to ask myself these questions more often....
