Justice and love

The word 'justice' has several meanings but the one most accepted is 'each one his/her due'. Anyway, during the spiritual reading I was 'playing thesarus' with this word: Justice.
So I came up with equal, balance, exploitation, rights, corruption, peace, fair, sharing, responsibility, right, to each one according to his/her deeds, lobbying, freedom, campaign, community, court, law...
But the word that is most associated with justice in the Bible is none of these!! The one that occurs most often along with 'justice' is 'love'. Now that's strange!! Maybe because love gives the other more than just his/her due.
