Jeremiah 5:1-8, “Finding the one man.”

Jeremiah had really looked. He had observed the poor, the rich, the princes, the rulers, the religious elite and he had come up empty. Jeremiah would have been cut up about this. Everything depended on him finding just one “righteous man.” The fate of the whole city of Jerusalem relied on him finding this one person. The problem for Jeremiah was that he wasn’t looking for a needle in a haystack because there simply was no needle.
