In some situations, we can do little more than "pray for the best."
"The best" may be one of those phrases that can cause contention- different people have a different idea of what "the best" in a given set of circumstances might be.
However (and this is important), generally speaking, most people with good intentions will understand what you mean.
For whatever reason, and perhaps this isn't confined to our modern world, there are people out there who enjoy arguing. They enjoy debate, argumentation, fighting, and what have you, and perhaps they enjoy it for reasons we can't understand, up to and including for its own sake.
This is what I mean when someone will deliberately engage in arguing about what "the best" in a situation means.
I want to emphasize that this isn't a matter of necessarily having our individual perspectives of what something might look like- none of us can know exactly how things will end up beforehand, but we all envision it in some way.
And again, someone want to take that and make it into a big argument that doesn't really need to happen.
Robust debate perhaps has its place. But that place doesn't necessarily exist in spaces where we're trying to accomplish something together.
So let us commit to working together and moving forward in life. Christ does tell us, after all, that "Blessed are the peacemakers."
