We spend time with our families because we love them. We go to work because we love what we do (or we love eating and having a place to live). We play sports, video games, or any other type of games because we love it.
Every day, I do my best to be a good husband to my wife and be a good father to my kids, mainly because I love them. It may be obvious, but love keeps our family together. Love is the reason I work as hard as I do at work, so I can give my family the best lifestyle and as much opportunity as I can give them. Love is the reason why I play with them, even when I'm dead tired at the end of the day. My love for my family is why I dedicate so much of my time and effort for their benefit.
We should always be motivated by love. When we do things out of love, good things happen. When we do things out of fear or hate, bad things definitely do happen.
When we act out of fear, we fail to understand. We distance ourselves from other people. When we act out of hate, we fail to love. We fail at being compassionate, respectful, or sympathetic. We insult the humanity of others and our own. When we act out of hate or fear, we hurt ourselves.
We need to always act with love; it's what you, I, and the rest of the world needs.
