Duck Dynasty’s Sadie Robertson took to Instagram with some inspirational words of wisdom.

The reality star, who recently shared a throwback wedding photo, had some thoughts to share on humility.

“We have been doing a book club with @jenniesallen book on the LO sister app and last night we got to talking about humility and i can’t stop thinking about something…” she shared, lining out the difference between the words “humility” and “humiliation.”

She posted a photo of her looking like a “starfish.” In the photo, she’s wearing what appears to be a dark-colored jumper perfect for fall.

This is gonna be a very deep post on a picture of me that looks like a starfish😃 We have been doing a book club with @jenniesallen book on the LO sister app and last night we got to talking about humility and i can’t stop thinking about something… humility – the modest view of ones own importance humiliation – the state of being humiliated I was thinking about these two words that sound so similar. One makes you and the other breaks you. It’s crazy to me that someone could experience the same moment as someone else and one walk away and says, “that was humiliating” and the other walk away and say, “that was humbling.” One walks out feeling like their life is over. The other walks out feeling like God can use that moment for glory. The same thing that someone else let destroy them because of – could be the thing that someone else allows God to make something out of it. Jesus himself experienced something that required humility for him to follow through with, but yet at the same time brought forth humiliation, but do you think He ever looks back at the cross and says, “man that was humiliating…” No, that was love. His humility was willing to be humiliated for Gods glory. I think spiritual maturity is the game changer. I’ve been challenged by this thought – that so many times we say we want to be humble, but we don’t notice that in our prayers we pray that we could avoid anything that would actually humble us. We pray things like, “God help me to do my best.” “God help me to nail the job.” “God help everything to work out right.” Instead of saying things like, “God I pray that I do my best, but even if I don’t you are my strength in my weakness.” “God I pray I get the job, but even if I don’t I pray that this moment is used for your glory.” [[Phil. 2:3-4]] For those who walk in humility they allow humiliation to come, because they know that though they are weak GOD IS STRONG. Those who walk in humility don’t live for their own glory, and so it’s not so detrimental when their own glory is taken. Just some thoughts I’ve been having, especially in a world who loves to humiliate other people. Beat them to it – walk humbly.

Robertson pointed out that there are different situations for either word that can change drastically based on their contextual usage.

“For those who walk in humility they allow humiliation to come, because they know that though they are weak GOD IS STRONG,” Robertson wrote.

“Those who walk in humility don’t live for their own glory, and so it’s not so detrimental when their own glory is taken,” she continues.

Sadie has been active lately on social media. Her family has also had plenty to say as of late. In a recent interview with People, Sadie opened up about her mother Korie Robertson. Korie believes her daughter is pregnant “every single time” the pair talk.

It seems Sadie is just as outspoken as the rest of her family when it comes to speaking her mind. If she’ll be spilling positive thoughts like this one, we can’t wait to hear what she says next.
