First you should know that God is always capitalized.

To answer your question if you love God then you know He tells his children to love each other. But God goes further than this. God tells his children to love even their enemies. In other words, God even requires His children to love those who despise us and wrongfully use us. This leaves out no one so God requires his children to love everyone which is all of our fellow men. This is because God is Love. How do I know this is true? God says "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 6:32. God loved you so much that He gave His only son (Jesus) as the payment for all of your sins past, present and future to give you the gift of eternal life. All you need to do is believe God and receive the gift of eternal life which is Jesus.
