Faith without works is dead. But for Christians that hold legal and honest employment, why can't ones' daily routine rank among such works? For did not God also create the physical realm or other assorted spheres that these various occupational tasks keep functional? Hyperlegalists and the ultrapious will likely respond that such deeds cannot qualify as a good work because one is financially compensated for them. But according to that logic, nothing that a minister does on behalf of the particular church they represent counts as a good work either since the deed is being carried out as part of the duties for which the journeyman theologian is reimbursed.
