Pride disguises itself as many things and we are not able to discern it apart from God's light. I want to share with you where I found it hiding in my life and give some Bible examples.

Pride can disguise itself as compassion for others.

2 Sam 15:1-6 And it came to pass after this, that Absalom prepared him chariots and horses, and fifty men to run before him. And Absalom rose up early, and stood beside the way of the gate: and it was so, that when any man that had a controversy came to the king for judgment, then Absalom called unto him, and said, Of what city art thou? And he said, Thy servant is of one of the tribes of Israel. And Absalom said unto him, See, thy matters are good and right; but there is no man deputed of the king to hear thee. Absalom said moreover, Oh that I were made judge in the land, that every man which hath any suit or cause might come unto me, and I would do him justice! And it was so, that when any man came nigh to him to do him obeisance, he put forth his hand, and took him, and kissed him. And on this manner did Absalom to all Israel that came to the king for judgment: so Absalom stole the hearts of the men of Israel.

Absalom cared little for the people he spoke with, his real desire was gaining support for a rebellion against his father. In the end it cost him his life. God looks on the heart and we need to remember our motives do matter. If showing compassion toward others is motivated by something we hope to gain it's a form of pride. Our motivation should be our love for Christ. Anything else is impure. It's a love for Jesus that will give us true compassion for others. Our true motives can often be hid from us only God's light can show things us as they are.
