We increase our capacity to love by giving it away. "Love" is an action verb. The more we try to see the good in others- the more we try to forgive what others do to us- the more we try to see the "up" side of life- the more we will find love.
Read I Corinthians 13 for a good description of love; it tells us that love is patient and kind. Love does not seek its own; rather, it is an outward giving of oneself to the world.
It really is quite simple.
But it is not easy to love all the time- but we have to try.
The opposite of LOVE is hate. Remove hate and you increase your capacity for LOVE.
Do not use the word hate.
Eliminate the the feeling of hate and you increase the room for JOY.

Love is an action, it is caring and compassionate, love is not a feeling or emotion. Love is an action, when my friends need my help and I am busy but I drop what I am doing to help my friends that is love. When I see my friends hurting and I comfort them, that is love. It is not love to say I love you, poor you, well I have to go now.
Love is being hurt and praying for the one that hurt you, it is forgiving and asking for strength to forgive those that hurt you. It is concern and care coupled with action to make the situation a better situation than it was. Love does not go around telling others of your friends problems and saying "poor (friend) he suffers so much, this is terrible." That is passive caring or worry it makes you feel better but accomplishes nothing for the person and in fact may even make it worse! But it is finding out your friend is very sick and going into prayer and getting others to pray and to keep the words positive about this friend and his condition. Not a bit of it pity, but full action to resolve this because you love that person enough to motivate you to help him even if he is a stranger or an enemy! That is love.
Jesus loved humanity so much he died for us to be saved, that was an action of expression, "I Love You" just doesn't cut it, real love is action and expression.
