What is your motivating force?

What is the difference between being motivated by love and motivated by hate?
When people are truly love others. They automatically want what is best for the other people. It makes them hurt to see other people involving themselves in activities which aren’t in their best interests. It makes them upset when they see injustice. When people are motivated by their love for others, they hate the things that are not motivated by love.
When motivated by love, people fight against things they see are wrong. When motivated by love, people stand up for those they love even if that means standing against people who are stronger.
When people are motivated by hate they do all they can to suppress the freedoms of others.
Sometimes, people motivated by love and motivated by hate can be on the same side, but not for the same reasons.
The creator is motivated by love and calls his people to also be motivated by love. This is a love which demands the best of other people. It is a fierce love.
Romans 12:9-12

Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good. Love each other with genuine affection,and take delight in honouring each other. Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically.Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.

Micah 6:8

No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.
