As-Salaam alaikum,
In Ayat 21 of Surat Ahzab of the Holy Qur'an (33:21), Allah Ta'ala says:--

"You have indeed in the Apostle of Allah a beautiful pattern
(of conduct), for anyone whose hope is in Allah and the Final
Day, and who engages much in the praise of Allah."

In view of this, since our object is Allah, Tabaraka Wa Ta'ala, and the Final Day, we are charged to follow the Prophetic guidance set by Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam-- the guidance referred to as "a beautiful example.." that Allah loves. The beautiful example of the Prophet is openly shown/indicated in the inner qualities of his soul, designated by his compassion, justice, generosity and forgiveness.

We should imitate him in this, Sallallahu alaihi Wasallam, by obeying the rules of Islamic Shari'a and overcoming everyday forgetfulness of the soul. This is related with the teaching in Ayat 31 of Surat Ali-Imran of the Holy Qur'an:--

"Say (O Muhammad): If you love Allah, follow me, and Allah will
love you and forgive you your sins" (3:31)

In otherwords, the way to become worthy of Allah's love is to follow Prophetic guidance. The goal of this guidance is explained by a famous Hadith-Qudsi in which the Prophet, alaihis-Salaat Was-Salaam, quotes the words of Allah, Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala:--

"When My Servant approaches Me through good works, then I love
him. When I love him, I am the hearing with which he hears, the
eye with which he sees, the hand with which he grasps, and the
foot with which he walks." [Bukhari, Hadith No. 6502].
