Minecraft is obviously all about mining and crafting. Or is that really all? Okay, so there's mobs to defeat and biome exploration, too. But there's something else beyond that which also contributes to making this game awesome.
Bible verses from The Message:
Excerpt from Hebrews 3: 1-6- "A builder is more valuable than abuilding any day. Every house has a builder, but the Builder behind them all is God." Only God can make sunrises (or at least real sunsets--we have programmers to make digital versions of God's masterpieces).
From Ephesians 2: "God is building a home. He’s using us all—irrespective of how we got here—in what he isbuilding." Outside of Minecraft we are also crafting, contributing to this world God has given us.
From 1 Corinthians 3:9-15: "Take particular care in picking out yourbuilding materials. Eventually there is going to be an inspection. If you use cheap or inferior materials, you’ll be found out."
Guess that fancy quartz you made was worthwhile after all! Well, we know this verse is metaphorical, so it can be both literal and philosophical. If the 'materials' of your life are hate or bitterness, they won't be as sturdy as love and hope."
