Transition

First Point: v 8. Mind and heart.

Peter is finishing a section of his letter here, hence he starts with a “finally.” He bringing us to the culmination of the point he is making about our roles as lively stones and as priests in His temple, serving under the Lord Jesus, our great, high priest.
These are the attitudes we are to exemplify.
Unity of mind: This means of one mind. We are to be generally in agreement in our faith in Jesus. It is our faith, given by the Holy Ghost, that unifies us. If we are not unified in our faith, there is a problem. What unifies us is not only our faith, but the Word of God - we must be in agreement about it, what it means, its signficance, and about the gospel.
Sympathy: this is a good translation of the concept Peter is explaining. We will have conflicts and disagreements, but these can be overcome if we are sympathetic, one to another. Generally, when there is a conflict, it is the result of misunderstanding, or of a deeper problem, perhaps a sin problem. We need to consider, as we deal with one another, that the other is dealing with matters and stresses we know nothing about, so we need to be sympathetic. We are all prone to sin.
