When I was about 19, I was standing in line at a Marine Corps mess hall.
While standing there, my vision turned to "snow" (like on old-school TVs) and the surrounding sounds were all muffled. Then I "heard" God "speak" into my thoughts, "Ask Me anything you want to know and I will answer you." With His voice, I also felt His real presence. His glory was so intense that I could find no question that seemed relevant in His overwhelming presence. I was just dumbstruck. Moments later, my sight and hearing returned to normal.
What I took away from that was just how insignificant knowledge was in the eternal view. Yes, like money, it is the currency of this world, but we need to keep its true (lack of) value in perspective.
"Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears." 1Cor. 13:8-10
