When Jesus calls us to seek first the kingdom of God, He is reminding us where our treasure is. He is directing our gaze away from the blessings of earthly beauty, of earthly fruitfulness, even of earthly peace. He is directing our gaze toward heavenly beauty, spiritual fruit, and peace with the living God. When Jesus calls us to seek the righteousness of God, He is reminding us that because we are now in ourselves sinners, naked and unashamed isn’t what we should be shooting for. Rather our goal is covered and unashamed.
