I Timothy 1:15-16
The saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the foremost. But for that veryreason I received mercy, so that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display the utmost patience, making me an example to those who would come to believe in him for eternal life.

There are people who rarely like to admit that they are wrong. They value a good excuse over forgiveness. They are also very difficult to be around for long periods of time....or even short ones for that matter. There are people who think everything they do is wrong. They spend alot of time trying to feel better about that. There are people who admit they are wrong. Grace and forgiveness is a big deal for them. And then, there are people who admit they are wrong, leap quickly into the arms of grace, live thankful lives and repeat that cycle over and over again. Paul was a good example of one of those kind of people.
