The word “finally” does not mean that the things he writes are sort of an add-on to the truths he has already taught. This adds a practical dimension to the teaching about having the mind of Christ. A spiritual mind can understand what is wrong as well as what is right. This mind is maintained to the degree we find our joy in the Lord, not in people or “things” around us. Nine times in this chapter Paul mentions “things.” Some are good and some are bad. It is important for our daily living as a Christian to, first of all, heartily rejoice in the Lord no matter what the circumstances are in which we are found. So in spite of the things around us, some things have to be said.
