Any reason you omitted the last line from "If"?

Peter, the truth is actually I must have missed that line when I found the poem floating around the internet somewhere.
However, your question is actually a great potential flash point for some thoughts/opinions on what that last sentence adds, if anything, or detracts from the overall message.
I actually like the poem better with the final line omitted... Reading the words apart from the rest of the literature allows the mind to digest what they really were meant to convey, as a part of the whole piece and on their own.
My inner devil's advocate can defend three reasons why I feel the sentence doesn't jive.
Seems strange that I can only come up with one argument that justifies inclusion.
What's that? Share them?
Only if others contribute first! Muahaha. Nothing like some analytical thinking with a chance for societal/moral stereotypes on this lovely Tuesday morning.
I will repost this comment in todays post in case others want to join this text based melee.

Firstly omitting the last line annoyed my sensibilities and altered the poetic style by omitting the last line of the last stanza, not to mention that it changed the author's point. Kipling wrote this, like his other works, (The Just So Stories, and The Jungle Boo) primarily for children, in some part due to his own dreadful childhhood of mistreatment and foster homes, and perhaps his own children dying young - his son in WWII.
Leaving it out leaves the work incomplete, like saying "If you do/don't do that". Waiting for the other shoe to drop, so to speak.
I think the point of the last line is more than the seemingly obvious, he, or anyone educating his own child. It really speaks to us all that if a person can actually achieve the lofty goals enumerated in the work, then that person becomes a person of immense character, of moral fiber, of good judgment, wise and dependable, and someone to look up to and be respected. They are notable objectives for anyone, the attainment of which produces a valuable member of society. God knows, we could use a few of these today. I believe the last line is critical. It is the point of the whole exercise.
