What it says on the tin.

John 13:34-35 New International Version (NIV)

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

Candy, Farmer of Good,

Yes, you know your Bible front and back and can comment on the Hebrew and Greek and went to hell and fought with the devil and all the demons submit to you and angels obey you and Jesus high fives you... and all of that is meaningless because life is about relationships and relationships are built on a basis of trust and respect and concern.

1 Corinthians 13:1-3 New International Version (NIV)

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

It's a cruel world out there. Let's all be kinder to our fellow man.
