What this scripture means is that love is an action word and its not conditional. It is not based on what you get for someone or what you give them, or what they get or give to you. Once love is there it is always there until the end of time and if it isn’t then it wasn't really love. Love isn’t a feel it’s a state of being.
John 3:16 (King James Version)
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
God love the world so much that he gave us his best, his only begotten son. When you love someone you must be willing to give them your very best and nothing less will do. If God, according to the Bible, was willing to do this out of love then we must exhibit this same love to one another.
You must know and remember that your love come from Your god and you must present this love back to him/her with everything that you have. This passage is that we love one another as we love ourselves.
Here again is reference to loving wealth and things, but that righteousness is attained by giving or spending [nafuq] for what one loves. Thus, these verses come closest to the Biblical injunction "Do not love the world, nor the things in the world." I John 2:15
This of the world would be the pagan celebrations of love.
