2 Samuel 17:17-21 says, "Jonathan and Ahimaaz were waiting around at En Rogel. A servant girl would come and give them messages and then they would go and tell King David, for it wasn't safe to be seen coming into the city. But a soldier spotted them and told Absalom, so the two of them got out of there fast and went to a man's house in Bahurim. He had a well in his yard and they climbed into it. The wife took a rug and covered the well, then spread grain on it so no one would notice anything out of the ordinary. Shortly, Absalom's servants came to the woman's house and asked her, 'Have you seen Ahimaaz and Jonathan?' The woman said, 'They were headed toward the river.' They looked but didn't find them, and then went back to Jerusalem.
"When the coast was clear, Ahimaaz and Jonathan climbed out of the well and went on to make their report to King David, 'Get up and cross the river quickly; Ahithophel has given counsel against you!'"
Why didn't they give the spys up? They were loyal to King David even though the whole country seemed to be following Absalom. Why were they loyal to David? I can only assume he earned their loyalty.
There is not one person alive or dead who isn't significant, significant to God's plan. Even after we are dead our lives still speak to those who are alive (for good or bad).
You are where you need to be right now in this time. God is working in and through and around you. Wait on Him in times of trouble. Wait on Him in times of peace. Wait on Him in expectation of what He will do next.
