1John 4:20 "If a man say, I love God and hates-(original Greek is 'to love less than yourself' – keeping in mind what Jesus said in Matthew 22:39,40 about loving your neighbor as yourself, and keeping in mind Philippians 2:3 "Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.")-his brother he is a liar. For he that loves not his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?".For we are all one, all brothers and sisters in this universal sea of mind, of energy, of spirit.
    1John 3:14,17,18 ".....He that loves not his brother abides in death.....But whoso has this world's good and sees his brother have need and shuts up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwells the love of God in him? My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed and in truth." 
Luke 10:29-37 ".....and who is my neighbor?".(in this discourse, Jesus shows that one's neighbor is one who needs compassion shown). And, who is my brother?

Your neighbors are those needing your help, concern and comfort. However some are bitter and fight off love. Your brothers and sisters are those believers who similarly have needs. Love not shown is love unknown -1John 3:11,18,19. Love not expressed has no second best -1Corinthians 13:13.
    And how much of it to give? Doing your best to help others without neglecting the self is loving in balance.
    Love is of no value unless it is expressed and affects someone. It can't be felt by another until it is expressed -Romans 5:8; 8:32; Ephesians 5:2; Hebrews 9:12,24; Titus 2:14; 1Thessalonians 5:10; 2Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 3:13. Love for another can be expressed to God. Then those feelings will be communicated through the Spirit to the person intended.
    God is love (1John 3:16; 4:7-11) and He loves us -John 16:27; 1Peter 2:21 "Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest (brought forth) in these last times for you. Who by Him do believe in God, that raised Him up from the dead and gave him glory-(fully able to think and thus be, as God), that your faith and hope might be in God.".God loves us tremendously.
    Love begets love -1Peter 1:3; 1John 4:19. Christians show affection to those they love.
    A kiss often was given upon greeting and departure. Social attention by means of a kiss was a symbol of brotherly love -Romans 16:16; 1Corinthians 16:20; 2Corinthians 13:12; 1Thessalonians 5:26; 1Peter 5:14.
    Today we have the mental health professionals advising us of the benefits of oft shown affection by means of hugs, etc. and the feminists screaming sexual harassment if you touch me! Like, hello! Who stopped payment on your reality cheque? Truly the devil and his demons have many doctrines (1Timothy 4:1) they pump into those they can with the purpose of keeping man separated from God.
    There is a way out of mental illness. It's called prevention; and home life is ground zero for mental health. And if someone is insane now ...
    Happiness is like a kiss. In order to get any good out of it you have to give it to somebody else! 
    One's innate-attractiveness is equal to the depth of one's skill in expressing it. Does what you think make you love God and people more? Does what you think add to your attractiveness? To be filled with the fullness of God one must learn to love as Christ loved -Ephesians 3:19
    Welcome all the heavy, hurting hearts you can (those whom you feel safe with) into the comfort you have for them. Love involves following peace with all men -Hebrews 12:14

Just as when you feel the love from someone (things they do for and with you and the ways they are with and towards you) and you express love back, this builds a relationship, so it is with God and you. 
    God feels us -Hebrews 4:15. God (we're made in His image -Genesis 1:27) is also an emotional being (that's why we have emotions; living would be dry without them). 

Please don't be like the blind many, who only see this physical life. You are going to be rewarded-for your works of love. Ask, seek and you'll find those who need help. Use your worldly goods to "lay up treasures for yourself for eternity" -Matthew 6:19-21 "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt and where thieves break through and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."

Galatians 5:14 "For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; Love your neighbor as yourself." If you want more love in your heart.-...continues

A kid's view on love and marriage:
Question: How do you decide who to marry?
Answer: No person really decides before they grow
up who they're going to marry. God decides it all way before,
and you get to find out later who you're stuck with. ...Kirsten, age 10.
