If you don't take this extra precautionary measure, you will end up carrying a swimming pool in your purse. I repeat, open water bottles and purses are not a favorable combination.
Yes, I know this seems like an obvious fact, but apparently it isn't so clear to some of us. Earlier this week, I grabbed a bottle of water off the table on my way out the door, completely oblivious to the fact that it did not have a cap. When I arrived at church for Bible study I realized that my cap-less bottle had poured out inside my purse, drenching some of my favorite possessions, including...gasp...my Bible. But (yes, there is a wonderful, glorious "but"!) since I carry my Bible in a simple, handmade leather pouch, the Bible itself was not damaged. I was so incredibly thankful! I was thankful, too, that the pouch itself was able to be salvaged, and was not ultimately damaged in spite of its little swim.

Bible safe and dry! Thank you, Cordoba Leather!
Also, keep your Bible away from water. And invest in a good case or cover if you haven't already (turns out I know a guy who can help with that!), just in case you have a moment of stupidity like I did.
