    Should I Pay More Attention to God?

    Q: I just turned 50, and I didn't think it would bother me, but it really has. Suddenly I've realized that I'm getting older, and I wonder if I'm wasting my life. To be honest, I haven't paid much attention to God, but is it too late to change that? -- K.C.

    A: I'm thankful you're thinking about your life and where you're headed in the future, because this is one of the most important questions you will ever ask. Tragically, many people never ask it until it's too late and their lives are over. The Psalmist prayed, "Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom" (Psalm 90:12).

    You can't change the past -- but listen: It's not too late for you to turn to God and discover His plan for the rest of your life. You may have forgotten God -- but God hasn't forgotten you, because He loves you and wants to help you discover what it means to know Him. The only life worth living is the life that puts God at its center instead of self. And this can happen, because God loves us and wants us to walk with Him every day.

    How do I know this? I know it because God sent His Son into the world to bring us back to Himself. You see, only one thing separates us from God, and that is our sin. No matter who we are or how good or bad we've been, we're all sinners, and we are all separated from God. But Jesus Christ came to erase our sin and guilt, and to reconcile us to God.

    Turn to Jesus Christ and commit your life to Him today. You'll never regret it, because He alone gives us hope -- both for tomorrow, and for all eternity.
