Crumbs from the Master's Table by William Mason
This devotional book contains short Biblical meditations. A thought or exhortation is followed by a Bible verse for further study. Originally published in the eighteenth century, Appleton Publishing republished it as a miniature book in 1831 and it was very successful. These meditations are profitable for any Christian who desires a closer walk with God.
"Go not to any place where you cannot pray in faith, Lord, let thy presence go with me. Do nothing on which you cannot pray in hope, Lord, help me. Aspire after nothing for which you cannot ask in love, Lord, it is for thy glory, give it me. Whatsoever ye do in word and deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus. Colossians 3:17."—Crumbs from the Master's Table.

He was long known as a Justice of the Peace, and, in 1783, was appointed an acting Magistrate. His principal work, by which he is best known, is "A Spiritual Treasury for the Children of God."
