he says he reward those who seek him deligently, that means humble yourself unto him and he is the one who'll bless you, and those who are too proud all their friends have rewarded them.

What does Jesus mean that Everyone who exalts himself will be humbled and whoever humbles himself will be exalted?
See also my answer to the parable of the lost son. Here he uses the example of the invitation to a banquet. We must be humble and choose the humblest place - keep in a corner and not fight for the best seats - implying that we feel that we are worthier than the others. Getting jelous like the other son if the Father adorns us with the best clotes etc. Which is probably more a way of blessing the returned son - the clothes etc have no value in themselves but its` the `enthroning` gesture at the centre of His Fatherly heart. Where we can all snuggle taking It in respectful charitably turns.

Jesus himself shown a good example to be always humble. Humility is one of the quality, which Jesus is expecting from us. Like Jesus, we should lead a humble life. We should learn to love, forgive and be peace with others. Then only the humble will be exalted.

Jesus means seeing yourself as nothing in front of others so that they see your humility and make you great in the end.

Jesus at a Pharisee's House

It happened, when he went into the house of one of the rulers of the Pharisees on a Sabbath to eat bread, that they were watching him. Behold, a certain man who had dropsy was in front of him. Jesus, answering, spoke to the lawyers and Pharisees, saying, "Is it lawful to heal on the Sabbath?"
But they were silent.
He took him, and healed him, and let him go. He answered them, "Which of you, if your son or an ox fell into a well, wouldn't immediately pull him out on a Sabbath day?"
They couldn't answer him regarding these things.
He spoke a parable to those who were invited, when he noticed how they chose the best seats, and said to them, "When you are invited by anyone to a marriage feast, don't sit in the best seat, since perhaps someone more honorable than you might be invited by him, and he who invited both of you would come and tell you, 'Make room for this person.' Then you would begin, with shame, to take the lowest place. But when you are invited, go and sit in the lowest place, so that when he who invited you comes, he may tell you, 'Friend, move up higher.' Then you will be honored in the presence of all who sit at the table with you. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted."
He also said to the one who had invited him, "When you make a dinner or a supper, don't call your friends, nor your brothers, nor your kinsmen, nor rich neighbors, or perhaps they might also return the favor, and pay you back. But when you make a feast, ask the poor, the maimed, the lame, or the blind; and you will be blessed, because they don't have the resources to repay you. For you will be repaid in the resurrection of the righteous."

Luke 14:1-14
