The last Beatitude in Matthew 5 has to do with being punished for doing the right thing. Are you willing to follow Jesus to the point of causing trouble? Are you willing to do what you know you ought to do and let the chips fall where they may?
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
