Why does Matthew 25:31-46 say only those who have given to the poor and cared for others are allowed into God's Kingdom?

Since we cannot make it to Heaven by our good works, why are good works mentioned here?

Matthew 25:35

ESV - 35 For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.
