Why Love

I was thinking, why do i have to love. When i thought about the reason to love one thought came to mind. Love because thats what people deserve in the end. No matter what a person is or was, they deserve to be loved.
Here are two verses that I really like.

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
(1 John 4:7-8 ESV)
