People who turn to Christ in their later years may feel deep remorse for time wasted in sin. It's tempting to wish we had been enlightened earlier and not have wasted so much time.
Those who get born again when they're young may feel that they didn't understand it, fell away into backsliding, and wish they would have been converted at a more mature age.

(2) The thief on the cross who was promised paradise but was dying and had very little time to renew his mind, share his faith, or do anything for God.
