Loving Others

When Jesus said to love others, what did he mean?
If the measure of love I have for those around me is the indication of the measure of love I have for God, how do I know if I am loving those around me?

As a person who gets along with nearly everyone, there is not really anyone I actively dislike. Does that somehow make me super-person who must love God a lot? I’m not sure. Not actively disliking someone does not necessarily mean I love them.

If I walk by a homeless person and ignore them, am I not-loving them?
If I write off a person in my social circle, am I not-loving them as well?

Just some things I was thinking about today with the young peoples group at church.
