self centered narcissistic people will eventually have to face their human imperfections,while those who show mercy to others will receive mercy. they will understand the gift of grace and give and receive gratitude.

It means, whoever is humble in heart will be glorified in heaven by God through grace & mercy and whoever has pride and arrogance, lifting themselves only will eventually be humbled by God through conviction.

Exalted = to lift urself up high.... humbled = to be brought down a few notches. therefore if you bring yourself up high you're going to be brought down a few notches and visa versa.

I think it means if you put yourself above others as being better than others you will be put to shame by God. If you are treat others as you would like to be treated he will recognize you as such ( a good person)

Whoever humbles themselves will be praised in heaven. But the one who exaltes them selfes has their satisfaction on earth. I believe it is like jesus said about the pharisees who pray out in the open and show off they had their reward with how people will now think about them.

We are not to think of ourselves more highly then others. For all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God. When a man thinks he stand (pride) take heed lest he falls. We are to always remember even our rightenous is like filthy rags unto the Lord. We all need to be helpers one to another always making supplicatons for one another. for Jesus didn't come for the ones that are heald, but for the sick, and we all have been sin sick. Let us continue by faith to pray one for another. God Bless

What does Jesus mean that "Everyone who exalts himself will be humbled and whoever humbles himself will be exalted"?
Jesus was preaching against pride and arrogance because these are sinful attitude that block us from a place in salvation. Jesus wanted us to be humble because this is an essential attitude for salvation. In Ephesians 2:4&5 and 2:8&9 we are told that it is by grace through our faith that we can be saved and this is so that we will not boast. So from this verse it is clear that Jesus wanted us to be humble and he showed us the example by washing his disciples' feet.

Anyone who tries to 'put him/herself forward' will discover that they are going to get push-ed back, either by others or circumstances, but those who out of deference for others, and are not trying to 'get ahead' of everyone else, eventually find that both others and cir-cumstances 'lift them up'. God is the 'great leveler' and turns upside down what people feel they have turned right side up.
