Law of Love

This is a tough passage from the Sermon on the Mount, with some hard sayings from Jesus. Jesus’ words here about divorce have often been interpreted in a way that has caused great harm and lasting trauma. What do we do with that? Do we allow love and compassion to distract us from the law of God? OR do we condone harm done in the name of obedience to God? Are those our only choices? Is there, perhaps, another way?
