“Seek first the kingdom of God”, because what we seek in the world is meaningless without the inner life. The inner life is where the kingdom of God resides.
When we think of a “kingdom”, we normally think of a monarchy. But the “kingdom” of God is a different kind of kingdom, where everyone is a king.
Or to paraphrase something Alan Watts once said, in the world, everyone is considered equally inferior, but from the standpoint of God all people are divine.
