Eph 3:8 To me, though I am the very least of all the saints, this grace was given, to preach to the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ,
1 Co 15:9 For I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.
1 Ti 1:15 The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.
Paul states that he is:
Least of all the saints
Least of all the apostles
The foremost among all the sinners
Paul did not let the afflictions of this world, pride of this world, or the sin of this world affect his work for the next world.
