In 1 John 4:19-21 it says, We love because God first loved us. Whoever says, “I love God,” but hates his brother is a liar. The one who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love the God whom he has not seen.
This is why in Romans 12:18-20 It says: If it is possible on your part, live at peace with everyone. Do not avenge yourselves, beloved, but leave the room for God's wrath. For it is written: "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the LORD On the contrary, “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink. For in so doing, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
And in Leviticus 19:18: 'You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the sons of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself; I am the LORD.
