Here’s the difference: when I’m pursuing works or busyness as my justification or my goal, I’m essentially making approval and recognition from others into my gods. It can even be “for the Lord” and be a distraction from the Lord himself. But if I’m pursuing good deeds (of every size and shape) as a response to the goodness of God poured out to us in Christ, it flips everything. It doesn’t have to seem important, it doesn’t have to be recognized by other people. Because it’s for the Lord and he sees everything.
