How to Handle a Promotion

Artwork for Hand Me Another Brick: Timeless Lessons on Leadership

We’ve all experienced or witnessed demotions, cutbacks, downsizing, or layoffs—dreadful realities that prompt a run on self-help books. Occasionally, God promotes His people in a marked fashion, but we seldom hear messages or read books about what God says to those who have experienced a promotion. Using Nehemiah’s own experience as the basis of our study, we learn how to pass the test of integrity that comes with a promotion.
