I will talk about 1 John 4:8 "Whoever does not love, does not know God because God is love." 1 John 4:8 means that if you don't love anyone you can't know God because God is love and all people. 1 John 4:8 also is like the story of Ruth and Naomi. The story of Ruth and Naomi is that Naomi's husband and son died, she was lonely and wanted to return to Bethlehem. Ruth lived with Naomi and loved her when Naomi said she was leaving Ruth said " I am your friend, I will never leave you! Wherever you go, I want to go, where you live I want to live too." So Naomi took Ruth to Bethlehem. In Bethlehem they worked in a field and married. I think Ruth and Naomi is like 1 John 4:8 because Ruth loves Naomi and knows God and God loves her. 1 John 4:8 is like a soccer, football, volleyball and many other sports because if you think those sports dont have a ball or anything you don't really know them or how to play them because those are the main things of the sport like love is the main thing of God!
