Secondly jesus taught that the reason you wouldn't be concerned with money is because go would provide for you. Something like "god provides for birds and you are more than a bird"
I think you have to keep in mind the idea of an enteral life after death to understand imitating christ. Worldy concern are important but not when compared against an eternal relationship with all that is good in the universe. I think christ was very connected to his body other wise his perfection and death wouldn't be so important.
Perfection doesn't mean totally rejection o the physical, you can still experience sex, food, sleep, the environment animals, music, art ect. There is a theological idea that the purpose of a human is to live out their authentic self fully as they were made by god. That includes you body but it doesn't mean you over indulge in the sensual parts of life. You are your body but also more. You body has a purpose in this world but soul has a purpose in other world so you need to care for them both.
I'm not the authority but I think one theory for an imperfect creation is that it underscores the perfection of god. Basically how can you fully experience glory with nothing else o compare it to. Introducing imperfectio to allow for the appreciation of perfection and then sending jesus as a way to reconnect the imperfect to the perfect after "proving the point"
I would think the reason that god would do this rather than great a female/male dual system is that it's sort of an arbitrary separation of parts of an all encompassing being. Gender is a human physical quality not applicable to a universal "force". Just think, we accept that humans have male/female attributes so really it's just a pointless division if qualities.
