Does falling in love (Ishq) with a human develope our love for the Creation & the Creator ?!

Salaam,

What does it mean to you to Love - GOD? Does Love to you mean a feeling? or does Love mean Caring and Responsibility and being Responsible towards something you care about? Do you think feelings are too transient?

To Love GOD is it just based on a feeling? or do we have to prove we Love GOD via our Actions? Can I say that I love GOD or even feel I love GOD but if my Actions are not in Sync with my feelings then where is the Love? Can we actualize our Love of GOD by not doing what GOD Loves via our Actions? GOD commands us to create an Islamic Society. Is it possible that we Love GOD but we do nothing to change our Society?

Regarding Human Love; If I Love my wife then it must be based on my Actions and by showing Care and Responsibility for one of GOD's Creations if I am successful in doing this then by default I am also showing Love towards GOD.

We must ask ourselves what does GOD love? The Quran tells us GOD Loves - Freedom Justice and Equality. As long as my Actions are Constructive and I am actively pursuing Freedom in the society with my focus on practicing Justice while dispensing Equality in my daily activities then I am at one with doing the will of The Creator.
