The Worth and Cost of Humility

I've been chewing lately on the idea that the worth of humility really is worth the cost. I need to learn to pray more for it without fear.

Humility is something I've prayed for but only in fear. Fear of what the Lord would have to do to humble someone as prideful as me. Fear of being broken frankly. But the more I'm reading the word the more I'm seeing humility as an essential for any man of God. This may be obvious to you, but is just now slowly sinking in for me.
