The biggest thing that stands out in this verse to me is "But seek first God's kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things will be given to you as well." It seems that Jesus is telling us here that we are to put spirtual matters above earthly matters. Make God, His kingdom and His right way of living first. I think of the command "there shall be no other gods before me." When we put our wants, needs, and everything else ahead of seeking God first, in a sense we have made the other stuff gods. Jesus knows what we need to make it here, we have to learn to rest in that truth.
