The point was made succinctly. Riker was tempted to use the Q's powers by a very agonizing situation, but he managed to resist the impulse and sought the high ground.
Didn't he already use them to give "gifts" to the rest of the bridge crew? Saving the little girl would have been a thousand times more useful than any of those things aside from giving Geordi his sight back.
The gifts came after the colony rescue was complete.
So he was corrupted by the power anyway and wound up doing nothing positive as a result of not saving the little girl.
