Jesus' point in Matthew 6:25-34 is that disciples have no reason to be anxious about the necessities of life, for their heavenly Father will certainly provide for them and has called them to seek after much more than food, drink, and clothing- namely, the kingdom (cf. Matt 6:10) and the righteousness of God (Matt 5:20).
