Harry Potter is an idiot

If you discovered that you could do magic, would you really waste your seven years of school flying around on a broom? Wouldn't you try to learn as much magic as possible? The only magic Harry seems to want to learn is only that which will help him pass his tests.
Dude. You can do incredible magic. Why don't you try your hardest to learn how?

(So, too, 'Ashreinu Ma Tov Chelkeinu', why waste our years in yeshiva? We have magic at our fingertips, we just need to open our eyes and our seforim to see it...
Of course, I'm not trying to limit which lesson about Avodas Hashem you take from my post. Feel free to throw in any other lesson you could learn.)
