Giving Into Temptation

Instead of giving-in to temptation, collapsing in the face of persistent pressure, could it instead/also be giving (i.e. pouring oneself, donating) into temptation?

Temptation, the enemy, pulls and plucks at us, picks at us, until we take what we have within us, the life we carry within, and let it leave ourselves. We put that life, pour that vitality, into what we were tempted with. And because the focus of the vision was a tempting and not a divine drawing, the object we pour ourselves into does not deliver or develop more life; it destroys it. A sieve, our life goes into and through it and is wasted.
