Ministry on This Verse

love as brethren.
or, loving to the brethren.
 We are never to indulge in evil or recrimination on the principle of tit for tat, but always to be in the spirit of blessing since blessing we receive from God. (1 Peter 3 by F.B. Hole)
 Rivalry, self-seeking, liking to differ or even thwart, is not Christ, but of the first and fallen Adam. When the eye of faith rests on all, Himself and those He loves, there is no difficulty. Naturally we see others' faults and overlook our own; but this is the old man; it is the reverse of Christ, Who is our new life and Whom we are called to live. (1 Peter 3:8-12 by W. Kelly)
 Surely we may and ought to rejoice with those that rejoice, but far more frequent is the demand on our sharing the grief that abounds, and especially for righteousness or Christ's sake. It is our common portion as Christians to suffer with Him, even if we may not have the experience of suffering for Him. In any case sympathy in these holy sorrows is sweet and strengthening. (1 Peter 3:8-12 by W. Kelly)
 "Brother-loving" is a plain call, as belonging to the same family of God. Are we not to love them personally beyond our affection to our natural kin, as the bond is deeper and of divine nature and everlasting? (1 Peter 3:8-12 by W. Kelly)

J. N. Darby Translation

Finally, be all of one mind, sympathising, full of brotherly love, tender hearted, humble minded;

W. Kelly Translation

Finally [be] all likeminded, sympathetic, brother-loving, tender-hearted, humble-minded1;

WK Translation Notes

humble-minded: The last word of 8 should be not "courteous," but "humbleminded," on ample authority, an evident link of connection with the gracious endurance which knows how to bless in presence of injury. (Bible Treasury 14:79-80)
