What does it mean to love every person?

When you practice to do right by everyone, consider everyone with courtesy and treat people properly, you're manifesting love .

Now some or many will say love is a strong emotion, strong liking, great affection for.

While I'm on this topic, there is no different types of love such as a man that loves a woman different than perhaps his brother or son but more on that later.

What does it mean to love a person?

Well ultimately there are things as a result from having a love for a person.

This is why love is an action word.

For example of a man loving his family. What does he do, what is the action? How does he show his love?

He has care and overall concern for the well being of those he loves so he goes to work. He's on time at the workplace. He ensures the income is sufficient for shelter, for food, clothing, healthcare.

Alongside that, he'll do things directly, indirectly, big or small that will support the satisfaction and content of those he loves.

Question is just how small of a thing he'll do.

How does that small thing compare to him doing a small thing for anybody?

Now think of him that loves to volunteer at hospitals, homeless shelters, caring for those less fortunate.

Doesn't make a difference if he knows any of these people, the homeless, the infirmities, the patients, the destitute.

It is indeed possible. Just talk to humanitarians.

The problem is humans are born sinners, there is no way in our perfect world that we could love everybody. Some people are just pure evil like murderers, dictators, rapists, etc. We wish to love everyone but we are incapable.

The reason I have been forfeiting a lot is that I was busy.

Too bad you came in late because I have questions and I could of followed up with the answers.

I would ask why are you incapable of loving everyone?

Remember back to what I explained about what it means to love anyone.
I'm not talking about an emotion or having strong likeness.

Regardless of a person doing right or wrong, why would you be incapable of doing right towards them?

Whether that means helping them to better themselves for the good or receive chastisement or discipline for the good or better, it's doing right towards them.

You threw a spiritual element in here upon broaching sinners. Is it the Christian love towards the sinner to rebuke them so that they get right?

Do you think the neighbor that you love won't be a sinner?

Love thy neighbor.

Again we could have interacted on this more but maybe we can in the future.
