Two references to set 2018 resolutions

As we set new resolutions we use points of reference to determine the right direction of our goal setting efforts.

We know that once we are on the right way, "half of the way is actually done".

We essentially look at two points of reference as we set our goals:

Point of reference #1:
Current teachings of living prophets

Question:  Are my goals in harmony with the current teachings of living prophets?

Point of reference #2:
Personal and Family Statement

Question: Will my goals help me progress in one or more of my personal and family purpose statement?

Where is our star today?

For years we have use a stool to reach to the top of our Christmas tree to place a star, without it would not be a proper tree for the season... the star stood there above everything else, telling us, and point to us, the way to the real Christmas meaning and story!  
"Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his starin the east, and are come to worship him." [Mathew 2:2].
Obviously these wise men were righteous and on seeking to witness the presence of Christ on earth. Their spiritual capacity is evident, for they were able to see the star that others could not; they knew it's meaning, were certain and confident that they brought meaningful presents to honor the young child!
In return they were blessed as they were warned of God in a dream to return to their home by a safe route and once back at home I am certain they shared their witness with others.
Where is our star today? Can we see it? It is guiding us? Is its light bright and shining? Or is it …
