What is the most context-specific act in the entire spectrum of human behavior?

Eugene Peterson destroying the overly simplified definitions of love and leads us to an life of immersion in acts of love. Just brilliant!

“Love is the most context-specific act in the entire spectrum of human behavior. There is no other single human act more dependent on and immersed in immediate context. A dictionary is worthless in understanding and practising love. Acts of love cannot be canned and then used off the shelf. Every act of love requires creative and personal giving, responding, and serving appropriate to–context specific to – – both the person doing the loving and the person being loved. “
