God Made Me Different For a Reason

The ministry of Christian Veterinary Mission extends around the world, reaching into small rural communities of nomadic cattle herders and into busy small animal clinics in bustling cities. CVM is dedicated to mobilizing, training, and sending veterinary professionals as missionaries wherever God has called them. But CVM is also passionate about investing in men and women in the U.S. and giving them resources, opportunities, and encouragement to step out in faith to follow His lead. Read about the experience of 2011 graduate, Dr. Melissa Cheeks, and what “brought back the spark” to her life during the rigorous days of vet school and led her to the role she plays today that is the perfect fit for who she is.

The tongue of the wise commends knowledge, but the mouth of the fool gushes folly. (Proverbs 15:2)

There are plenty of aspects of the workplace environment that we can control, but tongues are traditionally difficult. As humans, we are somehow drawn toward scandal. We want to be “in the know” and find out secrets about one another, whispering behind closed doors. In any workplace, it’s easy to be drawn into this endless circle of gossip. It’s easy to convince ourselves that we aren’t doing any real harm; I mean we’re not physically hurting another person, and for that matter, the person of interest likely doesn’t know we’re talking about them. In any insular organization, the threat of gossip becomes larger. So how do we control gossip in our staff while being good leaders?
